A wife, a mistress and a daughter circumnavigate a husband, a lover and a father in a poignant study of love and obsession. Triptych is a lyrical portrait of a man seen through the eyes of his three women, seamlessly exploring sex, marriage and damaged relationships where love can both liberate and entrap.

Following his acclaimed production of Ring Around the Moon, award winning director, Sean Mathias presents this new production of Triptych with Southwark Playhouse.

Triptych boasts an international cast featuring Orla Brady (recently seen in the BBC’s Mistresses); Terry Norton, reprising her award-nominated role of The Wife (in Sean’s recent production at South Africa’s Market Theatre); and newcomer Jessica Ellerby.

Edna O’Brien has been a leading figure in Irish literature for more than four decades. Described as a ‘poet of heartbreak’ her first novel, The Country Girls created a scandal when it was published in 1960 for its vivid exposition of two girls growing up in rural Ireland.
