The Big Fellow

VENUE: DROICHEAD ARTS CENTRE, STOCKWELL STREET
TIME: 8.30PM
TICKETS: €16/€14 CONC

Twenty years after their first Drogheda collaboration, Declan Gorman and Colin Blakey reunite to tell the compelling story of Michael Collins as written in 1937 by Frank O’Connor. More than a recreation of Collins’ life, however, the play focuses on the emerging writer, O’Connor, who fought opposite Collins as a timid teenager, and now seeks to retell his enemy’s story, as ‘an act of reparation’.

Laced with intrigue and humour, this the big fellow is an edge-of-your-seat theatrical adventure: the birth of a nation recalled by the artist who survived, and the tragic hero who perished at the hands of former comrades.

With Cillian O’Gairbhi as Michael Collins and Gerard Adlum as Frank O’Connor.

Co-Motion Media in association with Bachelors Walk Productions and Drogheda Arts Festival.
