Dramatisation of Colm Tóibín’s powerful bestselling novel Nora Webster, by BAFTA winning screenwriter Adrian Hodges.

In late ‘60s Ireland, Wexford woman Nora Webster is grieving for her husband Maurice. She’s just 40, still wounded by their last weeks in hospital and now a single parent to four children. While her girls are away at school and college, Nora and the boys do their best at home, finding it hard to connect to one other. Nora’s world shrinks around her, forcing her back to the job she did as a young woman before marriage and children. Gradually, tentatively, through music and friendship, Nora begins to find hope again.

Siobhán McSweeney (DERRY GIRLS) stars as Nora Webster and leads a stellar Irish cast including Brid Brennan, Norma Sheahan, Ruth Bradley, Gary Lilburn, Edward MacLiam, Jonathan Forbes, Paul Reid, Sophie Robinson and Lauren Coe.

The bestselling and critically acclaimed novelist Colm Tóibín is perhaps best known for Brooklyn (which became a film starring Saoirse Ronan) and The Master.

Award-winning winning writer for screen and television Adrian Hodges wrote the Oscar nominated film My Week with Marilyn, BAFTA winning TV series Amongst Women (adapted from the novel by John McGahern), the BBC adaptation of Philip Pullman’s The Ruby in the Smoke starring Billie Piper, and was the writer and creator of The Musketeers and co-creator of Primeval.
