The Parting Glass
Produced by axis ballymun, Ireland, in association with terraNOVA Collective, Written by Dermot Bolger
Three friends all pushing 50 gather in the Stade de France on November 18, 2009 to cheer on Ireland in the World Cup play-off only to see their hopes of a championship dashed by French soccer star Thierry Henry’s left hand. With caustic wit, acclaimed Irish playwright Dermot Bolger gives sharp insights into the last two decades of Irish history through these stories.
“Profound new work, elegant (and) a rare achievement…” Christine Madden, Irish Times
