'Three married couples arrive at Ballybeg pier to celebrate the birthday of Terry by visiting an island he has acquired, Oilean Draíochta, the enchanted island… has the echoes of Hy-Breasil, the isle of the blest where, like Avalon, mortals can heal themselves of their hurt. It is a play of atmosphere and moods, and in many ways it is the most profoundly multi-layers, sad, beautiful and musical of all Mr Friel's creations.' Irish Independent

Wonderful Tennessee was first performed at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in June 1993.
