County Sligo Youth Theatre

County Sligo Youth TheatreThe County Sligo Youth Theatre are performing ‘The Shadow of a Gunman’ by Sean O’Casey tomorrow, Friday and Saturday at the Hawk’s Well Theatre, Sligo.

County Sligo Youth Theatre

A poignantly comic and ultimately tragic play, set in the tenements of Dublin during the Irish War of Independence. The residents of an overcrowded slum house show wry wit and human warmth, while the notorious Black and Tans prowl around the streets at night. A young poet, Donal Davoren, finds himself the victim of mistaken identity as an IRA gunman. The notoriety of being “on the run” becomes an attractive deception, especially when it enhances the affections of his lovely neighbour, Minnie Powell. But at what cost?

  1. I’ve wanted to see this for a while now, but kept putting off getting tickets – dumb idea. I’m going to find out if there are any left, and then ask the hubby if he’d like to see this. If it’s yes on both counts, then I may just see you there tomorrow.
