John MacKenna is an award-winning novelist, short story writer, documentary maker and playwright.


Starring IFTA Award winning actress Ruth McCabe, Sinead O’Riordan, Donna Patrice and Kate Gilmore.

Directed by IFTA Award winning writer Iseult Golden.

Inspired by real events, ‘Breathless’ explores the circumstances and effects of disappearance, not just on those left behind but also on those who have disappeared.

“I wanted to write a play that recognises the lives of women who disappear — the real lives,” the author says. “The four women in this play bring the strengths and failings that were part and parcel of their daily lives into a condition where loss, confrontation, anger and even humour are unavoidable.”

3rd – 15th February at 8pm in The Boys’ School


Presented by the companies that brought you the highly acclaimed “The Woolgatherer” which received five star reviews (“Knockout performances…..Triumphant theatre…” – Sunday Times and “Raw, Captivating and Poignantly honest…….Mesmerising” — Entertainment.ie) and “Dolores”, (“Powerful, evocative and heart-breaking”), this poignant, funny and heartrending story of four women and their lives will have audiences laughing, crying and sitting on the edge of their seats.
