The award winning McGowan Trilogy is back for one night only – this Friday Aug 28th Main Stage. Info and tickets here Town Hall.

The Trilogy is a set of interrelated one act plays examining the Irish ambiguity towards violence in general and physical force republicanism in particular, and how violence corrupts the perpetrators as well as the victims.

The antihero, Victor M McGowan (the M stands for murder ), was raised in Old Mervue, spent his summer holidays near Callow Lake in Mayo, and moved to Belfast where the milieu of mayhem suited his erratic psyche.

The individual one act plays are Dancing At Lunacy, The Long Wet Grass Minutes, and Boys Swam Before Me. The settings are a drinking club in Belfast, a field beside Callow Lake, and a nursing home near Tuam.

‘Scanlon’s irreverent evisceration’s of the pieties of Irish nationalism are darkly comic, disturbing and curiously affecting – Declan Hughes (Digging For Fire, All The Things You Are)’

‘A trio of plays that begins with comedy and irreverence and ends with pathos and loss is surprising, original and hugely enjoyable – Christian O’Reilly (Chapatti)
