Bernard Farrell’s Canaries was first performed on stage at the Abbey Theatre in October 1980. Since then it’s been a great hit with many audiences.
Set in the Canary Islands we meet a collection of colourful characters. From a couple who are not shy about sharing their ‘holiday’ with anyone willing, to a couple of singletons who are not who they seem! Throw in a young couple on holiday with a parent, an ageing Contessa who’s determined to get back to Madrid, a Spanish waiter with more than tending bar on his mind and a couple of Germans who are having a few problems of their own! All this adds up to a hilarious two acts you’re sure to enjoy.
