Heartbreak House at the Abbey Theatre

We got tickets for the play Heartbreak House at the Abbey Theatre, on Abbey Street in Dublin. The play is written by George Bernard Shaw and is a period drama comedy, set in a Country house.  A retired Sea Captain and his two daughters and friends have a dinner party is the general gist of it.  It was based on the themes of love or lack of it and deception.  The costumes were great and the actors were all very talented, I enjoyed seeing the actor Don Wycherley, the actor from Bachelors Walk, the RTE TV show.

This was our second time at the Abbey Theatre, we went to the play Drum belly last year, which was a play set in the 1960’s about Irish American gangsters in New York, I thought it was very good.  We also saw the Abbey production of the Sean O’Casey play, Shadow of a gunman, but at the time the Abbey Theatre was undergoing asbestos removal and the plays were been staged in Belvedere College, it was nice to see inside Belvedere but I would like to see a Sean O’Casey play in the Abbey one day as well.
