Aria Entertainment is taking over the Old Red Lion this May to present a revival of the renowned Portia Coughlan by Marina Carr and the world premiere of a new musical The Verb, ‘To Love’ by Andy Collyer.

Portia Coughlan is a ferocious, haunting and beautiful Irish tale by Marina Carr writer of By The Bog of Cats, The Mai and Ullaloo.

Portia Coughlan lives in a monstrous limbo, haunted by a yearning for her spectral twin brother lying at the bottom of the Belmont River, unable to find any love for her wealthy husband and children, seeking solace in soulless affairs, deeply afraid of what she might do. Written to celebrate the centenary of Dublin's National Maternity Hospital, Portia Coughlan packs a hell of a punch. It hurts to look at it. But it has to be seen. (Irish Independent). Last performed at The Royal Court Theatre in 1996, this exciting revival at the Old Red Lion is directed by Bronagh Lagan (Rags-in concert (West End), Girlfriends (Union Theatre), Henry VI Part 1 (Rose theatre).
