story of a week in the lives of Billy and Breda Farrell as they
approach their 10th wedding anniversary. Breda is determined that
the milestone will re-ignite the passion in their marriage. Billy’s
got other plans. He’s become infatuated with the unobtainable
Imelda Egan and has convinced himself that they will be lovers by
As the date draws closer, Billy's behaviour becomes more and more
chaotic, while Breda's frustrations crystalise and find more
mature, high-risk expression. EDEN is the screen adaptation of
Eugene O'Brien's critically acclaimed, award-winning play of the
same name, marking the second collaboration by director Declan
Recks, Eugene O’Brien and RTÉ Television.
We were delighted that lead actor Aidan Kelley was able to be
present for the screening on Friday 19 September. EDEN is
screened again on Saturday 20 September.
