Gabriel Byrne on stage. In his own words. Walking with Ghosts is a homecoming.
Gabriel Byrne returned to the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin for the world premiere of Walking with Ghosts, adapted from his best-selling memoir of the same name. Directed by Emmy award-winning director Lonny Price, it played from 27 January – 6 February 2022. This unmissable theatrical event is now available to watch on demand from 26 February – 4 March.
As a young boy growing up on the outskirts of Dublin, Gabriel Byrne sought refuge in a world of imagination among the fields and hills near his home, at the edge of a rapidly encroaching city. Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and a commentary on stardom in Hollywood and on Broadway, he returns to his home town to reflect on a life’s journey.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Walking with Ghosts is a lyrical homage to the people and landscapes that ultimately shape our destinies.
Directed by three-time Emmy award-winning director Lonny Price, the creative team also includes Sinéad McKenna (set and lighting designer); Joan O’Clery (costume designer) and Sinéad Diskin (sound designer and composer).
