Donal O Kelly's award winning play Fionnula










Read what the critics say

“The magnificent O’Kelly – one of Ireland’s most gifted writer-actors – succeeds in telling a story that is not only gripping, funny and full of a rich sense of Ireland’s great tradition of myth and legend, but also ruthlessly precise in its analysis of the deep malaise of 21st-century Ireland” FRINGE FIRST The Scotsman

“**** A Ridleyan blend of violence and folklore .. a deliciously exuberant performance” Financial Times

“Fionnuala cuts a swathe through Shell/State propaganda, allowing audiences to access the truth of what’s happening in North Mayo” Hot Press

‘Fionnuala’ is a spirited, passionate one-man play wrought of paradox and contradictions. It is pointedly political, cuttingly contemporary, yet rooted deeply in Irish mythology. It is serious, intense, dramatic, yet funny and irreverent. The language is often lyrical, beautiful, poetic even, though remaining colloquial, naturalistic. A parable for the modern world: a spin-doctoring shill for Shell faces his Damascene moment over the controversial Shell Corrib Gas Project; there’s a lot packed into this hour, and writer-performer O’Kelly is never less than mesmerising in his performance. The story seems to evolve naturally, organically over the performance, until the final, chilling moments cast things in a different light… a masterpiece of modern theatre that assuredly belongs in the tradition of great Irish writing” ***** Three Weeks Edinburgh

“O’Kelly casts his own magic .. weaving the tale which finds Shell’s attitude, and its employees actions, to be comparable to those of the Catholic Church and the abuse by priests of children in their charge”. The Stage UK
