Gabriel Byrne to make West End debut in Walking with Ghosts at the Apollo Theatre

Irish actor Gabriel Byrne will make his West End debut in Walking with Ghosts at the Apollo Theatre in London this September.

The Hollywood star will perform his acclaimed solo show, adapted from his best-selling memoir, for a strictly limited season of just 14 performances from 6-17 September 2022 before it transfers to America. Book tickets to Walking with Ghosts at the Apollo Theatre.

By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Walking with Ghosts is a lyrical homage to the people and landscapes that ultimately shape our destinies. 

The production opened at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin in February this year where it sold out. It received enormous critical and public acclaim. Byrne was described as a “master of his craft” (Sunday Times), “captivating” (Financial Times) and the production as “storytelling at its simple best” (Business Post).

Byrne’s career as an actor, writer and director spanned both stage and screen. He has starred in over 80 films including The Usual Suspects, Stigmata, Vikings, War of the Worlds. His work on Broadway has seen him win multiple awards and nominations including a Golden Globe for his role in the television drama In Treatment.

As a young boy growing up on the outskirts of Dublin, Gabriel Byrne sought refuge in a world of imagination among the fields and hills near his home, at the edge of a rapidly encroaching city.  Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and a commentary on stardom in Hollywood and on Broadway, he reflects on a life’s journey.

Directed by three-time Emmy award-winning director Lonny Price, the creative team also includes Sinéad McKenna (set and lighting designer); Joan O’Clery (costume designer) and Sinéad Diskin (sound designer).  

Gabriel Byrne said: “’It was a real joy to hear laughter in a theatre during the premiere run of Walking with Ghosts in Dublin.  Although I’ve appeared several times on Broadway, I’ve always had an ambition to work on the West End stage.  I’m looking forward immensely to the experience of performing at the beautiful Apollo Theatre. 

I’ve chosen to be honest and unflinching in the recounting of a life from working class Dublin to Hollywood.  Although rooted in the local, I hope the play has a universal resonance.  What I want  in the theatre is to be moved to laugh … to be provoked … to be changed.  I think Walking with Ghosts sets out to fulfil that.

Lonny Price said: “I am thrilled we’re bringing Gabriel Byrne’s theatrical adaptation of his gorgeous memoir, Walking with Ghosts, to London. Not only is Gabriel one of the greatest actors of his generation, but his writing is funny, deeply moving, and wise.

The London performances of Walking with Ghosts are made possible by the support of Culture Ireland.

The show is produced by Landmark Productions, Neal Street and Playful Productions.
