A new play written by Una McKevitt,
Directed by Emma Jordan

Live-streamed from the Abbey Theatre

Running time: 1 hour and 20 minutes

Brenda wants Frank to do his exercises, Aoife wants to go to a wedding of all things, Fiona doesn’t know what she wants and Frank is looking for the gun. A comic new play by Una McKevitt, One Good Turn brings us a family on the brink who are keeping the show on the road any which way they can. Directed by Emma Jordan, Best Director winner at the Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards 2018, One Good Turn is a wry and life-affirming exploration into the ups and downs of family bonds.

One Good Turn will be performed live on the Abbey Stage on June 25th and 26th, and streaming to your homes.

It will be available on-demand until July 10th
