Written by Brendan Behan, The Quare Fellow takes place in Mountjoy prison during the early 1950’s. We follow the events that unfold during the hours before an execution by hanging.
Written with Behan’s typical humour and depth, we are presented with a very personal depiction of prison life.
Dialogue is intertwined between a rich tapestry of characters as we discover a grim world that seems lacking in an appreciation of life.
Exposed to gruesome crimes and in turn corporal and capital punishment, these men wrestle with what it is to be human and at times seem totally desensitised to the imminent ‘topping’ of ‘The Quare Fellow’.
We ourselves are drawn inside the walls and minds of these characters as we await the final echoing knell of the auld triangle.
MoneyForTheSun Productions has chosen to launch it’s Dublin based company with the staging of ‘The Quare Fellow’ by Brendan Behan. It has been some years since this play has been seen on a Dublin stage and we are delighted to bring our vision to the breathtaking surroundings of Smock Alley Theatre.
