In Enda Walsh's bedbound, O'Byrne portrays the morally bankrupt father of a sick girl (Jenna Lamia), whose dedication to success once resulted in murder. He had been grooming his daughter to follow in his footsteps, but polio destroys that dream. The drama, directed by Walsh (Disco Pigs, Misterman), is told entirely through monologues.
