Two new plays that premiered on the Peacock Stage at the Abbey Theatre in 2000


Down the Line: Dubliners Eve and James Walsh have reared four children. Almost. They have a son who took off to London, a daughter who can't go any further than the front gates without feeling homesick, a younger son orbiting the planet and a younger daughter who is the family's last great hope. A warm and irresistible story of suburban family life by the author of the award-winning Dublin Trilogy, Down the Line premièred on the Peacock Stage of the Abbey Theatre on 28 September 2000.

THE HUNT FOR RED WILLIE

On a remote stretch of bog in County Donegal in 1829, a local landlord meets his end while in pursuit of the notorious Red Willie. Foul play is suspected and the hunt is on. A farcical romp that casts a warm side-long glance at some of the classic plays of Irish theatre, The Hunt for Red Willie premiered on the Peacock Stage of the Abbey Theatre on 23 November 2000.
