Aidan Mathews






Aidan Mathews’s first published play represents ‘one of the most satisfying evenings of pure theatre seen in years.’

The framework is simple: in the first act a middle-aged Charles and Helen are bidding adieu to their world, swapping memories of a white honeymoon, a white hospital ward, and a succession of recollections of his thoughts and her feelings. In the second act, a very young Charles and Helen are facing the threats and promises of a new world together, swapping visions of what is and what may be to come.

I have seldom experienced in the theatre such an intellectual challenge to the emotions.’

— David Nowlan, The Irish Times

. . . a new play of rare delicacy’
