These Halcyon Days


New York reviews

'Deirdre Kinahan’s two-hander about a man and a woman in a nursing home in Ireland boasts excellent performances by Anita Reeves and Stephen Brennan' - New York Times

'a minor miracle ... a treat to watch two of Ireland's best-known theatre actors ... the play left me emerging into sunshine to look with new eyes upon the crowds enjoying the spring day' - Irish Echo

'It seems that the most vital voices in Irish playwrighting currently belong to women. For proof…catch These Halcyon Days ... a lovely, understated marvel about life and loss and finding the courage to keep on going, it features pitch-perfect performances ... completely unforgettable moments ... go and see it and be moved by a perfect production of a funny and unsettling play' - Irish Voice

'it runs a brisk 70 minutes, and for once you might wish to see a play go longer’ - New York Times

a joy to watch … both actors are outstanding, as is the chemistry between them’ - Times Square Chronicles

meaningful, heartwarming and literally invigorating … These Halcyon Days is a love story and explores what it means to be human. And how to live with dignity. These are important questions … These Halcyon Days is not a play about old people. It’s a play about people. These two find their way home, and into our hearts, when they find each other’ - Irish Examiner USA
