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.


"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."

- Observer
