This one-woman show marks the centenary of legendary Irish actress Maureen O’ Hara who was born in 1920. Star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, O’ Hara played roles that often mirrored her true persona as a tough and courageous woman. A frontrunner of the #Timesup movement, O’ Hara stood up against Hollywood’s studio bosses and steered clear of the casting couch – “I wasn’t a whore. I was unwilling to make that kind of sacrifice to get a part in a movie.” Portraying over twenty characters in this tour de force performance, O’ Dwyer takes you on an intimate journey with Maureen, revealing the person she was behind the limelight. The vanity case used in the production is the original case which belonged to O’ Hara.
