The Abbey Theatre is delighted to present the world premiere of MARBLE, a new play by the award-winning Irish playwright MARINA CARR, which runs from Tuesday 17 February until Saturday 14 March 2009. As the line between real life and the dream world blurs, jealousy grips and life for Ben and Catherine, and for Art and Anne begins to unravel. In this taut, funny and incisive new play, Marina Carr (Woman and Scarecrow, Ariel, By the Bog of Cats,The Mai, Portia Coughlan) lays bare the nature of desire and fidelity, courage and anxiety. Marble is a compelling play about friendship, marriage and the power of the subconscious. MARBLE is the seventh Marina Carr world premiere to be produced by the Abbey and thus continues the national theatre's relationship with the internationally celebrated playwright. Two friends. Two marriages. One dream of marble. Tickets are priced between €18 and €35.
