Gates of Gold

​Frank McGuinness

October/November 2016

Written by acclaimed Irish author Frank McGuinness, Gates of Gold is an acerbic duel between two lovers, based on the fashionable and eloquent theatrical trailblazers who founded Dublin's Gate Theatre (Micheál MacLíammóir and Hilton Edwards). Gates of Gold is witty and moving — a vibrant celebration of art, love, and finally, life itself.

After falling in love with McGuinness's writing in Someone Who'll Watch Over Me, we could think of no better way of restarting Wildgoose Theatre's journey, than with this amazingly touching and funny play.  We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

"Compelling! This endearing love letter of a play!" - The New York Times

"Moving! Provocative! " - New York Post
"Comic and elegiac...one of his best plays, a moving meditation on the transience of love, life, and theatre” The Guardian
