God Bless the Child

Based on stories by Frank O’Connor

The childhood stories of Cork born Frank O’Connor are rightly heralded as being classics of their kind. Three of his very best – First Confession, My Oedipus Complex, The Genius – have
now been brought together to forge a classic night of theatre entertainment. Richly evocative, hilariously funny, tenderly moving, this critically acclaimed production features stand out performances which bring back to joyful life the Ireland of the early 20th Century.

“God Bless the Child is something I would urge you to see… it is a delightful theatre event.” THE IRISH NEWS BELFAST
