Haughey | Gregory

Draíocht, Saturday 4th May 2019

Fishamble's Haughey|Gregory by Colin Murphy, directed by Conall Morrison, follows the deal made between Tony Gregory and Charles Haughey in 1982, when Gregory took a surprise Dáil seat – and suddenly found himself holding the balance of power. Can Gregory use his vote to achieve something for his constituents? To do so, he will have to face off against the dominant personality of Irish politics – Charles J Haughey.

Following a short, sold-out tour of Haughey|Gregory in 2018 – to the Abbey Theatre, Mountjoy Prison, Dáil Éireann and Croke Park – Fishamble tours the production nationally in 2019.

Playwright Colin Murphy's previous work includes Inside the GPO, Guaranteed!, and Bailed Out, all produced by Fishamble. He adapted the latter two for screen, as The Guarantee and The Bailout (TV3/Virgin Media One).
