The Visiting Hour – Gate Theatre – Preview
While a number of theatre companies around Ireland have been quite active online in recent months, the Gate has chosen not to indulge in virtual performances… until now! This week sees the return of the Gate Theatre, even if the theatre itself is still off-limits. This new production stars Stephen Rea and Judith Roddy and was written by Frank McGuinness. As the name suggests, it’s based around a nursing home during the pandemic, so very much a work of its time!
€15 concession | €25 standard ticket | €40 household ticket | €50 support the Gate ticket
Running time:60 minutes.
“All visitors are asked to respect the visiting hour,
and not to exceed sixty minutes with your loved ones.”
This moving new play about an Irish father (Stephen Rea) and daughter (Judith Roddy) at
visiting hour in a nursing home during the pandemic, will be performed and recorded in the
Gate auditorium, and streamed to audiences on April 22nd, 23rd and 24th at 7.30pm.
