How long have you been here, John?
— I don’t know.
And what’s brought you here?
— That’s difficult to answer.

John Kane is sitting on a hospital gurney, and very shortly a jazz percussionist, two women called Mary, a very old man and a giant lobster will arrive. Then everything will start.

​​Following rave reviews at the Edinburgh International Festival and sold out premiere at the Galway International Arts Festival, Enda Walsh returns to St. Ann’s Warehouse with Medicine, a devastating, funny and absurdist work that shatters the boundary between cast and audience. This “superb production” (The Scotsman), featuring Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter, Star Wars), features a sensational cast as Walsh once again shines a light on the darkest corners of our collective stories.

Runtime: 90 minutes, no intermission
