Medicine is a devastatingly funny and moving meditation on how, for decades, we have treated those we call mentally ill.
John Kane sits on a hospital trolley. Very shortly, a giant lobster, two women called Mary, a very old man and a jazz percussionist arrive. Then everything will start.
Medicine is a dark and frequently absurdist work that shatters the boundary between cast and audience. It is a devastatingly funny and moving meditation on how, for decades, we have treated those we call mentally ill.
This production features a sensational cast – Clare Barrett, Aoife Duffin and Domhnall Gleeson, with Sean Carpio – as Enda Walsh once again shines a light on the darkest corners of our collective stories. Walsh returns with his regular team of world–class collaborators: designers Jamie Vartan [set], Adam Silverman [lighting], Helen Atkinson [sound], Joan O’Clery [costume] and composer Teho Teardo.
