Portia Coughlan – First Revival
Off West End / Regional
Aria Entertainment presents “Portia Coughlan” by Marina Carr
28th April – 23rd May 2015
Old Red Lion Theatre
A ferocious, haunting and beautiful Irish tale by Marina Carr writer of By The Bog of Cats, The Mai and Ullaloo.
Portia Coughlan lives in a monstrous Limbo, haunted by a yearning for her spectral twin brother lying at the bottom of the Belmont river, unable to find any love for her wealthy husband and children, seeking solace in soulless affairs, deeply afraid of what she might do…
‘Portia coughlan packs a hell of a punch. It hurts to look at it. But it has to be seen.’ Irish Independent
Last seen at The Royal Court Theatre in 1996.
Directed by Bronagh Lagan
