Written and directed by Janet Moran
With Roseanna Purcell, Mark Fitzgerald
A huge hit at the Edinburgh and Dublin Fringes, A Holy Show was written in Paris while the playwright was in residence at CCI! This nostalgic comedy is based on the very ‘Irish’ hijacking of the 1981 Aer Lingus plane by an ex-Trappist monk with a bottle of water as his weapon, the Pope as his nemesis, and a burning desire to know The Third Secret of Fatima. Take your place aboard for a whirlwind flight as both actors play multiple characters at breakneck speed.
“Gloriously comic and unexpectedly thoughtful”
(**** The List)
“Full of energy and insight, this is a delightful and entertaining show which is remarkable in being Moran’s solo writing and directing debut.”
