The Good Father

Rise Productions

Thu 26 Apr 2018 8PM Main Auditorium // €18 / €16 conc

New Year’s Eve. A house party like any other, in a suburb like any other. Two very different strangers meet, each looking for a new start and to shake off the disappointments of the past. But champagne, cheap lager and their chance encounter leads this unlikely couple to an unplanned pregnancy. Against all odds, can they make their newfound family a success? Winner of the Stewart Parker Award, this heartfelt, moving drama charts their journey of love, loss, and redemption.
After the international success of Fight Night and The Games People Play, the multi award-winning Rise Productions returns to Draíocht with this touching story celebrating the triumph of hope.

Starring Marie Ruane and Daniel Monaghan.
