The Nest

Director Ian Rickson Starring
  • Caoilfhionn Dunne
  • Laurence Kinlan
    Lyric Theatre Belfast & Young Vic

    Parents-to-be Kurt and Martha just want the best for their baby. They’re not afraid of hard work - the latest buggy doesn’t come cheap. But when Kurt’s boss offers him a chance to make some easy money with a mysterious side job, his rashness catches up with him.

    The Nest will open on 1st October 2016 at Lyric Theatre Belfast and on 28th October 2016 at the Young Vic.


    They’re wonderfully rounded human characters, full of oddity and quirk: Martha cautious and watchful, Kurt bouncy and thrilled to be a dad, but later heartrendingly broken up by what he’s done.

    There’s an elusive sweetness here; but, above all, this stealthy, absorbing play is truly scary
