Grief is the Thing with Feathers

Barbican Centre · 25 MAR - 13 APR

“Cillian Murphy received up brilliant reviews when this opened in Dublin last year, so it’s no surprise this show sold out before it opened. A small number of new tickets have been released but if you miss them then you can always check on the day for returns. By all accounts, an incredibly beautiful and moving performance.”

“Enda Walsh’s ‘Disco Pigs’ launched the career of Cillian Murphy and now the two are reunited for this stage version of Max Porter’s novel about grief. Murphy plays a man, writing a book about the poet Ted Hughes, caring for his two young sons in the wake of his wife’s death. Then Crow turns up on the doorstep and offers to stay until the family don’t need him anymore. But when will that be? There were rave reviews when this show premiered in Galway last year.”


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.
