A Belfast homecoming for Quietly
The Abbey Theatre’s first performance of Owen McCafferty’s Quietly in the writer’s home town of Belfast was a momentous occasion. This extraordinary human play, about life in the aftermath of the Peace Process, was given a wonderful warm reception on its opening night at the Lyric Theatre. You could hear a pin drop throughout the performance but by the end of the play the audience were on their feet in rapturous applause. This was a memorable night for writer Owen McCafferty and the Abbey Theatre.
