Ireland’s Call – John Connors

Event Description

Follow the lives and family histories of three young men as they grow up in Coolock on Dublin’s northside.

What shapes them and entices them to a life of crime? Examining issues of class, religion and identity, this new play is an unflinching exploration of the Irish psyche, bringing our collective guilt, secrets and flaws to the surface.

John Connors is one of the leading Irish actors of his generation, receiving international acclaim for his role as Patrick Ward in the Irish crime drama series Love/Hate and for Cardboard Gangsters in which he won best actor at the 2017 Irish Film & Television Awards (IFTAs).

Developed as part of Show In A Bag, an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.

Léargas ar shaol agus stair teaghlaigh triúr fear óg agus iad ag éirí aníos sa Chúlóg i dtuaisceart Bhaile Átha Cliath. Cad é a mhúnlaigh iad agus a mheall i dtreo na coireachta iad?
