Collins in London – a play by John Dunne

Start date: 14th March 2020

Collins in London – a play by John Dunne

Much is known about the visits Michael Collins made to London as part of the treaty negotiations in 1921/22 – however, much less is known about the nine years he spent in the capital  working, at all places, at the Post Office Savings Bank.

Lodging with his elder sister Hannie, Collins was fifteen when he moved to London where he remained until his call back to Ireland for the Easter Rising.

This two-handed drama explores the years prior to 1916 and of course the time when he returns to London a totally different man altogether.

On a Wicklow Hill

On a Wicklow Hill

“They’d seen his face before…” A Day In The Life-The Beatles

She had not …And not knowing his face was their grace…

A force far greater than fate or destiny pushes two total strangers to cross paths one day on a Wicklow Hill. Whilst overlooking the magical Luggala Valley and mysterious Lough Tay aka The Guinness Lake, time stands still in more ways than one. Separate lives are lived through one day with moving, sometimes humorous and very unexpected consequences…

Written by Maria McAteer. Directed by Karen Spicer With Darren Cheek and Maria McAteer

NOTE: performances are on the 18th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd March.
