Irelands Call – John Connors’ play about three teenagers being enticed into a life of crime opens tomorrow 8th March  at The Civic and runs until Saturday 9th March. Following the lives and family histories of three young men as they grow up in Coolock on Dublin’s northside, this new play is an unflinching exploration of the Irish psyche, bringing our collective guilts, secrets and flaws to the surface.
Following each performance, join us for ‘The Civic Sessions’, a post-show chat discussing the themes the play addresses.  There will be plenty of opportunity to get involved in the discussion and we have some local guests joining John after the play, to share their thoughts and get the discussion going.

Friday 8th March: John Connors will be joined by director Jimmy Smallhorne and Mayor of SDCC, Cllr. Mark Ward
Saturday 9th March: John Connors will be joined by director Jimmy Smallhorne, former UFC Champion Paddy Holohan, and Head of the Dept. of Humanities (TU Dublin, Tallaght Campus) Helena Doody.
