Haughey | Gregory

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).

This story of youthful disillusion and mistrust of society and government has never been more current; particularly with the modern parallels in the USA where school children have mobilised to form an impressive campaign for gun law reform. The musical's hit songs include Boulevard of Broken Dreams, 21 Guns, Wake Me Up When September Ends, Holiday and the blockbuster title track, American Idiot from Green Day's 2004 Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum album.

The acclaimed Irish duo of singer/actress Honor Heffernan (Louis Stewart, Neil Jordan's "Angel"), and composer/keyboard player Trevor Knight (Auto Da Fe), present their Cabaret/Speakeasy-style show, "The Whistling Girl", creating a spellbinding alternative musical extravaganza of song and spoken word based on the lyrics of American wit and feminist icon Dorothy Parker. The original and unique music composed by Trevor transforms the poems of Parker into songs, using her witty, droll and sometimes heart rending lyrics. Each of the songs create individual tableaux or dream moments from Parker
