Four Rivers Theatre Company presents Happy Birthday Dear Alice, Bernard Farrell’s much-loved comedy, directed by Jim Nolan.

Happy Birthday Dear Alice is Bernard Farrell’s much-loved and hilarious comedy on the efforts of a dysfunctional family to commit their aging yet resilient mother to a nursing home so that they can sell her house. It is at once an affectionate hymn to old age and a ruthlessly comic dissection of family life from the master of dark comedy.

Directed by Jim Nolan and produced by Four Rivers Theatre Company, Happy Birthday Dear Alice has been described as Farrell’s most complete and fully realised play.
