A Holy Show is a new comedy based on the 1981 hijacking of an 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. Following on from the success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019 and Dublin Fringe in 2018 A Holy Show takes us back to 1981 and brings us on board the ill-fated Aer Lingus flight EI 164 from Dublin to London.
The show follows the passengers and crew as this most Irish of hijackings unfolds. A Holy Show marks Janet’s solo writing and directing debut. Based on the incredible story of the hijacking, the show throws light on Ireland’s relationship with religious faith through warmth and humour.
