THE STATE OF THE NATION
Four towering figures from Irish political history meet to play poker in the afterlife. As the game draws on the conversation hots up – covering topics from 1916 to civil war politics, water charges to hospital waiting lists, and Apple tax to Brexit. 100 years on just what do Thomas Davis, Jim Larkin, Michael Collins and Charlie Haughey make of the current State Of The Nation? Original production developed with assistance from Ireland 2016 programme and tour assisted by Donegal County Council.

THE FUND (staged reading)
In 1988 Fund Manager Davison Budhoo left the IMF. His open letter of resignation began: ‘I have taken the first big step to that place where I may hope to wash my hands of what in my mind’s eye is the blood of millions of poor and starving peoples’. Untold until now, ‘The Fund’ is a reimagining of the true story of one of the most earth-shattering revelations that no-one ever heard.
