Plays by Joe O'Byrne

En Suite

Bloomsbury Publishing
Type: Text

In Evelyn Dwyer's madcap B&B, 'The Bower', a motley collection of characters is bound together by a dark secret from the past.

What has Evelyn been hiding all these years? Why has her brother Owen returned from America? Why has Ella found religion? And what is the mysterious presence that haunts their lives? Joe O'Byrne's En Suite is a haunting and funny play about mothers and daughters, secrets and lies, and making breakfast.

En Suite premiered on the Peacock stage of the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in March 2002.
