Bedbound 23rd - 24th Oct 2021
Balally Players Theatre Company present Enda Walsh’s play Bedbound, a two-hander about a father/daughter relationship gone horribly wrong. The play’s action takes place on a small child’s bed. Dad talks frantically about his extraordinary past in furniture sales; Daughter talks no less compulsively about anything at all, to fill the terrifying silence in her head. Trapped in their own claustrophobic story, these two tortured creatures attempt to reach some kind of redemption.
In his foreword to the collection. Enda Walsh Plays: One (Nick Hern Books, 2011), Walsh writes: “Bedbound was my first effort away from Pat [Kiernan, director, Corcadorca Theatre Company] and towards myself. It’s essentially about the relationship between me and my dad. It’s wild but also very honest. A love letter to my sick dad at the time.”
