Here is the website for the Fringe show in which I’ll performing at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The play follows the existential journey of Hugo Barine, a young, militant intellectual anarchist, who leaves the comforts of his wealthy American life to join the IRA cause in the 80s. Taken in by the IRA, he is soon given his first chance to really act. He is commissioned to assassinate ‘Moriarty’, a leader within the IRA’s political wing, Sinn Fein. But as Hugo soon discovers, doing one’s duty is never black and white. Even the purest of motives, the quickest of actions, the most final of outcomes are marred by ambiguity.
This production is a re-written version of the original. Much liberty has been taken in the rewrites, but the existential kernel of the Sartrean classic remains… although the PCF would have probably hated our IRA-inspired version even more than the original!
Come and check it out, if you’ll be in the Edinburgh area in August :)
