The Thing About December

Town Hall Theatre

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

An original stage adaptation of Donal Ryan’s acclaimed novel

Rural Tipperary at the turn of the 21st century. Johnsey Cunliffe, a simple, naïve only-child in his twenties, grieves the death of his much-loved father. Harassed by local bullies and excluded by his peers, Johnsey’s isolation worsens when his inherited farm is re-zoned and becomes valuable. The clouds gather as locals try to tempt Johnsey into giving up his family’s land, while Johnsey, the unlikeliest of heroes, must try to hold onto those things dearest to him.

Directed by Andrew Flynn

Previews: 13th / 14th / 15th
