Greta Garbo Came To Donegal… and she did. The year is 1967 – nothing is ever the same after. Ireland is on the verge of violent change, two couples are on the verge of ending, a woman tries to save her family, a girl tries to save her future. Above it all but in the midst of things, determining what happens next, is the loveliest and loneliest of all women, the great Garbo. But when the gods arrive, they can cause havoc, not least to themselves, as the divine Greta learns.
Tricycle theatre Artistic Director Nicolas Kent directs the world premiere of Frank McGuinness’s new play Greta Garbo Came To Donegal.
