Irish stage and screen actor Cillian Murphy, gives a riveting performance in Enda Walsh’s theatrical adaptation of Max Porter’s multi-award winning novel Grief is the Thing with Feathers, which makes its UK premiere in the Barbican Theatre. This heart-wrenching meditation on love, loss and living is produced by Wayward Productions in association with Complicité and co-produced by the Barbican.

Critic reviews

It’s not perfect, but it’s experimental and viscerally gripping theatre

· A Younger Theatre

Enda Walsh’s scratchy, crow-filled exploration of mourning


Cillian Murphy helps this strange meditation on loss take wing

· The Telegraph

Cillian Murphy probes depths of sorrow in visually bold show

· Evening Standard

Cillian Murphy is phenomenal as a grieving dad in Enda Walsh’s devastating and disorientating adaptation of Max Porter’s novel

· Time Out

A brilliant, painful performance from Cillian Murphy

· Financial Times

Murphy plays a blinder in jarring tale of despair

· The Times

Murphy has an astonishing athleticism playing both man and crow in an adaptation of Max Porter’s story of grief

· The Guardian

Murphy's undeniable star power certainly comes second place to his mesmerising skills in this razor-sharp production

· Broadway World

At times, the inventiveness of Porter's words and the sheer hugeness of the staging bombards you into submission

· The Arts Desk

It is accomplished and deliberately artful, but strangely distancing
