Donal Ryan's novel The Spinning Heart earned huge critical acclaim and marked him as one of Ireland's top writers. The stage adaptation is opening at The Gaiety next week and we have two pairs of tickets to give away.
It captures the language and spirit of rural Ireland in a contemporary way. The story follows Bobby Mahon, who everyone loves, bar his Da. Revered by his men on the building site, captain of the team that almost won the county final, loved by his wife, Triona, only Bobby himself knows the dark thoughts that prey on his mind, prestaging tragic events to come. One by one the colourful characters’ varied stories build a panorama of a foundering society, while a narrative thread running through their accounts unveils unexpected dramatic events, stealing out of dark, hidden corners.
The stage production adapted by Paul Brennan preserves the original structure and narrative style of the book and highlights the dark humour of the story that captures the aftermath of recent events in Ireland.
We have two pairs of tickets to give away to the performance on 20 September at 7.30pm.
