Tony and Sheila are watching television… again. Their children are grown and their grandchildren are invading their lives. Sheila wants to travel; Tony is determined to stay put. Tony is on a new diet; Sheila could cut you in two with a sharp comment. All that’s on the television is sex… and they can’t remember when they did it last!

The Empty Nest comes to Limerick as part of a national tour, following sell out runs in Cork Arts Theatre and The Viking Theatre, Clontarf.
