Fishamble: The New Play Company presents Haughey | Gregory by Colin Murphy, directed by Conall Morrison.
The play 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 down the dominant personality of Irish politics – Charles J Haughey.
Cast: Ruairi Heading, Morgan C. Jones, Janet Moran, Michael Glenn Murphy, and Jonathan White.
Post show discussion with members of the company.
incredible actors…it delights the audience. The wit is razor-sharp, with barbed references to subsequent and current events…brilliant Politics.ie
