The Abbey Theatre and The Lyric Theatre’s co-production of
is running on the Abbey Stage in Dublin until the 1st of August. The Shadow of a Gunman
Wayne Jordan’s production, starring Mark O’Halloran, Amy McAllister and David Ganly, has received an enthusiastic reception.
“High theatrical energy is kept aloft by the colourful parade of O’Casey’s tenement dwellers, and equally the parade of O’Casey’s brilliant writing talent.”
“Nothing is more absurd in O’Casey’s 1923 play than the notion that art couldbe indifferent to politics. Set just three years earlier, itsnear-vaudevillian succession of intrusions leading towards something more shattering, was first performed during a vicious Civil War. It was a dangerous weapon itself, a tragedy played for laughs.”
“The drama packs a punch… as O’Casey reminds us ‘it’s the civilians who suffer’.”
“All poses have dropped away, and this impressively lucid production leaves us with the question: what would we have done in his place?”
