    Heart of Darkness

    Fiona McCann

    Got five and a half hours to spare and a soft spot for Joseph Conrad? Then mosey down to The Joinery on Arbour Hill on July 9th, where Gavin Kostick will be giving his acclaimed performance of the entire and complete text of Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. How can it possibly work? How can an audience be sustained through a five and a half hour performance, let alone Kostick himself? I’m curious, and if you are too, there are further details here. The horror, the horror . . .

      Caroline: Have heard great things about it, and as a Stoneybatter resident, it’s not so far away, so I’ll probably see you there.

      Saw Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night 2 years ago in the gaiety. 4.5 hours long but gripping, fantastic stuff, at least as far as this lad is concerned – my girlfriend fell asleep!

      Simon: I think I saw that production. My sister was nodding off too, but it was amazing stuff. Was that the one with James Cromwell and Marie Mullen? She was SPECTACULAR, I thought.
