"Someone who’ll watch over me" by Frank McGuinness is the story of three very different men kidnapped and forced to live together in a tiny cell in Lebanon, 1986. It’s a powerful play based on true events in Brian Keenan’s life, it will make you laugh and cry as the men try to combat isolation and boredom with the only tools they have, their imaginations. Directed by Niall O’Higgins and Starring Art Kearns, Conor Delaney and Danny Kehoe. https://www.facebook.com/events/447932555229546/
Let us know if you would be interested in volunteering at the festival – we need LOTS of people to make it run smoothly!
In particular we could do with a number of fit and able bodies to move stuff for short periods morning and evening.
Hope you enjoy the weekend, your feedback is always welcome.
Thank you, Festival Team
