Belfast Girls

Belfast Girls
about five young women travelling to Australia in 1850 draws a chilling parallel between the Irish Famine and today's continuing banking crisis. the story of the so-called orphan girls on board, for whom the voyage provides a fresh start  and also time to come to terms with the disaster they have left behind  is a savage attack on the policy (then and now) of laissez-faire.

Notes:
It was further developed at the National Theatre Studio, London in January 2012.

Leopoldville

Leopoldville
Leopoldville is a dark Irish play set in 1990, at the tail-end of the last recession. Based on the story of a real-life crime that happened at the tail-end of the longest recession in Irelands history, Leopoldville is a play about a gang of young men who rob a pub in a border town. Damaged lives are revealed and friendships profoundly tested as their crime spirals horrifically out of control.

Mushroom Pickers, The

Mushroom Pickers, The
Set in the border bandit country of County Monaghan, The Mushroom Pickers tells the story of Laura, an accomplished actor who leaves her career in London when her life unexpectedly changes course. A self-confessed square peg in a round hole, she returns home to join her father, Philip, to work in the local mushroom tunnels. Here Frank McElroy, manager of the family-run business and proponent of the wilder variety of mushroom, takes a shine to Laura and shares with her his dream of wooing the restaurateurs of Ireland and beyond. But Frank has a secret  and so does Laura.
