Room at the Abbey Theatre
The Abbey Theatre presents Room, a new stage adaptation of Emma Donoghue's international bestselling novel of the same name.
Following on from its screen adaptation, which went on to win Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTAs, this stage production is accompanied by a haunting score by Kathryn Joseph and Cora Bissett.
Room tells the story of Ma, who is locked inside a purpose built room in her captor's garden for seven years after being kidnapped as a teenager. Here she lives with her five year old son, Jack. He has no concept of the world outside and happily exists inside Room with the help of Ma's games and his vivid imagination where objects like Rug, Lamp and TV are his only friends. But for Ma the time has come to escape and face their biggest challenge to date: the world outside Room.
This is an Abbey Theatre and Theatre Royal Statford East co-production in assocation with National Theatre Ireland.
Tickets cost €13-€40
