Here Comes the Night
On the 8th of September I had the pleasure of reading Here Comes The Night A play by Irish playwright Rosemary Jenkinson to a sold out house at the stunning Irish Historical society - a beautifully preserved town house opposite The Metropolitan Museum of Art.The reading was a part of Origin Theatre's 1st Irish festival - The 1st festival celebrating the work of Irish playwriting in the world now in its 9th year.
Here Comes The Night set in 1966 and 2016 is a playful, thrilling and hilarious take on love, family and loyalties, asking important questions about our identity and remembrance. Here Comes The Night tells the story of Vincent and Mary Gallagher living in East Belfast in November 1966. Vincent is trying to finish his short story based on the Easter Rising, but Mary and the local priest want him to stop writing, fearing the reaction to such an explosive story.
I had such a wonderful time working with the incredibly talented cast of Irish actors, and check out all of the other wonderful plays at the festival here
