  • Sadie


We're partnering with the BBC for another exciting initiative

For the Spring Season, we will present the international premiere of Sadie, a searing new play from former Artist-in-Residence, David Ireland.

In contravention of lockdown rules, sharp-witted cleaner Sadie develops an intense, dysfunctional relationship with a much younger man – triggering a psychological showdown with the remnant demons of her past.

Directed by Conleth Hill with award-winning actress Abigail McGibbon, Sadie is a Lyric Theatre Production; in association with and originally commissioned by Field Day Theatre Company. Rehearsals will take place throughout January, in accordance with the NI Executive guidance and safety protocols. It will be filmed on the Lyric Main Stage in February, and broadcast on BBC Four and BBC NI as part of BBC Arts ‘Lights up’ Theatre for new Culture in Quarantine Season, transmission date to be confirmed.

Please note, this production contains strong language throughout and scenes that some viewers may find disturbing.
