Ireland’s Call

Ireland’s Call

Written and performed by John Connors
Directed by Jimmy Smallhorne

Follow the lives and family histories of three young men as they grow up in Coolock on Dublin’s North-side. 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 collective guilt, secrets and flaws to the surface. Don’t miss the critically acclaimed Dublin Fringe 2018 hit from IFTA award-winning Best Actor and star of Love/Hate and Cardboard Gangsters.

“John Connors is electrifying.”
(Meg.ie)

“John’s monologue is as much stark parable as it is unvarnished portrait of life in economically marginalised Dublin… The charismatic Connors brings vivid life to his character, whether consumed with anger and despair, or unleashing profane asides with verbal vim… A stark anthem to life on the margins”
(The Irish Times)
