What it’s about:
The Power of Memory to Triumph Over Death: In Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine
Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
Ms. Ruhl’s quirky contemporary meditation on a much-meditated-upon story has some of the subliminal potency of music, the head-scratching surprise of a modernist poem and the cockeyed allure of a surrealist painting. It’s pretty funny, too.
Who’s in it? Dermot Byrne, Sarah Coughlan, Maria Fitzgerald, Fiona Keane, Alice Meehan, Alan Nuzum, Conall O’Bealóin with Siobhan Caskie, Barry Donaldson, Emma Mulligan and Brian Nutley .

It’s 1920, and War of Independence rages on the streets of Dublin. Donal Davoren, an aspiring poet and recent arrival in a Dublin tenement is the subject of much curiosity. Mistaken for a gunman on the run, and with a whiff of danger about him, everyone is curious about Donal including the beautiful young Minnie Powell. What danger can there be in being the shadow of a gunman? But soon the reality of the brutal war on the streets outside moves closer to home with tragic consequences.
WHO’S IN IT
Kirana Bhagwan, Sarah Coughlan, Simon Cunningham, Barry Donaldson, Emmet Driver, Kevin Lyons, Rachel McConnell, Alan Nuzum, Luke Tracey and John Walsh.
The Shadow of a Gunman premiered at The Abbey Theatre in 1923 to immediate success, selling out for the first time in the Abbey’s history, and establishing Sean O’Casey as a playwright. The first of O’Casey’s three ‘Dublin plays’, this two-act work looks at the effects of war on ordinary people as they try to cope with its impact on their lives. RTÉ All Ireland Winners’ Dalkey Players are delighted to bring this O’Casey masterpiece to Dalkey. The ‘Dublin plays’ premiered during a time of revolution and civil strife in Ireland, proving both provocative and popular, and establishing O’Casey’s reputation as one of the most influential and enduring Irish playwrights.
