An incredible all-female cast announced for Eugene O’Hare’s play The Dry House at Marylebone Theatre.

The ensemble cast includes Derry Girls’ fan-favourite Aunt Sarah, Kathy Kiera Clarke (The Pale Horse and Bloodlands, BBC; Tartuffe, National Theatre; Medea, Citizens Theatre), who plays the role of Claire.Award-winning stage and screen actress Mairead McKinley (Edge of Tomorrow, Village Roadshow Pictures; Molly’s Way, dffb and ARTE; Translations, National Theatre) takes on the role of Claire’s sister Chrissy. Critically-acclaimed actress Carla Langley (The Ferryman, West End and Broadway; Carnival Row, Amazon Prime Video; The Witness for the Prosecution, BBC) is Chrissy’s daughter Heather.

The Dry House is a darkly comic redemptive play about love, loss and the possibility of hope after years of self-destruction. It follows sisters Chrissy and Claire as they attempt to overcome the devastating impact of alcoholism on their family. In County Down, Ireland, Chrissy promises Claire that after one final drink she will go to the Dry House to get sober, but Claire doubts she means it this time. Family and booze combine in this powerful and timely exploration of grief, family, addiction – and the immense and redemptive power of hope.

Eugene O’Hare is known for his roles in The Fall, and more recently Outlander, and has previously starred in Black Mirror and Industry.

The Dry House: Friday 31st March – Saturday 6th May 2023
