Remembrance

by

Graham Reid

SYNOPSIS

Remembrance, Graham Reid’s most popular play, may be set against the “Troubles” in Northern Ireland, but it tells the poignant and moving story of a Protestant widower and a Roman Catholic widow who happen to meet in the cemetery where their sons are buried.

Gradually and gently, the friendship of two lonely people develops into something deeper, despite the objections of their children, objections that provide the play with both its most violent outbursts and its greatest comic moments.

Remembrance has been performed all over the world. It ran for 8 months at the Irish Arts Centre in New York and, interestingly, for 18 months in Hebrew in Tel Aviv.
