Description

Whistling Psyche
A dark night, an old waiting room and two supposed strangers eager to reach their destinations. In the cold hours that rest between nightfall and daybreak, silent questions prompt unexpected revelations. Two souls share a passion for reform, but only one - Miss Nightingale - has been honoured. The other, Dr Barry, would never receive the same acclaim, but notoriety came after death and for a very different reason . . .

Whistling Psyche premiered at the Almeida Theatre, London in May 2004.

Fred and Jane explores the deep and sustaining friendship between two nuns, Anna and Beatrice, as they recall the trials and joys of religious life.

'This is Barry at his best: evocative, gentle, suffused with the beauty of the simple and the joy of turning the strange into the familiar.' Sunday Tribune

'A rare delight. A clear-running joy.' Sunday Independent

'A triumph in its own right.' RTE

Fred and Jane premiered at Bewley's Cafe Theatre, Dublin in 2002.
