God Bless the Child
First confessions are the hardest!
Following a hugely successful national tour in 2015, which included a season at the Gaiety Theatre Dublin, the critically acclaimed God Bless the Child now embarks on a new national tour in 2016, marking the 50th anniversary of the death of Frank O'Connor in 1966.
The childhood stories of Frank O'Connor are universally regarded as being classics of their kind. Three of the funniest: First Confession, My Oedipus Complex and The Genius have been brought together within a single full-length play. Richly evocative of Ireland in the early decades of the 20th Century, funny and moving, and featuring memorable performances, God Bless the Child is a must see, adapted for the stage and directed by Patrick Talbot.
Starring Ciaran Bermingham, Shane Casey and Gary Murphy.
