Days of Wine and Roses (stage version)

By Owen McCafferty

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

JP Miller's 1962 film Days of Wine and Roses, adapted brilliantly for the stage by Owen McCafferty.

Donal and Mona leave Belfast for a new start in 60s London. Strangers in an unfamiliar city, they fall in love with life, each other and the drink. A whirlwind of discovery starts to spiral out of control as the young alcoholic drags his wife with him into the swamp of addiction - from which only one of them can escape.

Owen McCafferty's Days of Wine and Roses is a free adaptation of JP Miller's screenplay of the same name for a 1962 film directed by Blake Edwards.

The play was first performed at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in February 2005.

Press Quotes

'Unmissable... the best new play of the season'

Daily Express

'Owen McCafferty's version of Days of Wine and Roses is a slow burn. It unfolds patiently, relentlessly; the damage it shows goes deep'
