  Marble  sees desperate passions erupt between Art (Joe Isaia) and Anne (Kylie Isaia) – husband and wife in real life and on stage.

Marble sees desperate passions erupt between Art (Joe Isaia) and Anne (Kylie Isaia) – husband and wife in real life and on stage.

What happens when your best friend dreams about your wife – on the night your wife has the exact same dream about him? It’s an idea explored in Marble at Marloo Theatre, written by famed Irish playwright Marina Carr and directed by Rodney van Groningen.

Art and Ben work for the same company, their lives controlled by board meetings and high-level presentations. They have been friends since childhood and both have beautiful stay-at-home, self-indulgent wives.

Art idly tells Ben he has dreamt of his friend’s wife as a blonde, wildly fulfilling sexual partner in a room lined with marble and decorated with marble statues. Disturbed, Ben then finds his wife Catherine has had a similar dream about Art.

Playwright Carr is the author of more than a dozen critically-acclaimed plays and has received the 1998 Irish Times Playwright Award, EM Foster Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Windham-Campbell Prize, one of the world’s most lucrative literary honours.
