Bob Kelly:Bless the Mark
'The Civil War is not a drama, it’s not a novel. It’s a sordid, wretched thing… the loss of life makes no sense whatsoever'. – Michael McDowell.
As part of the Hawk’s Well’s Theatre Artist in Residency programme, Bob Kelly presents the first of three work-in-progress readings. This first piece, focusing on anti-treaty revolutionaries, is loosely inspired by happenings in Sligo during the War of Independence and Civil War, including the story of Sligo’s ‘Noble Six.’
