God Bless The Child at the Viking Theatre

22 Aug 2016 - 02 Sep 2016 Viking Theatre, The Sheds, 198 Clontarf road

After a wonderful tour in 2015, which included a season at the Gaiety Theatre Dublin, God Bless the Child returns in 2016, marking the 50th anniversary of the death of Frank O Connor in 1966.

The stories of Frank O Connor are universally regarded as classics. Three of the funniest: First Confession, My Oedipus Complex and The Genius have been brought together within a single full-length play. Richly evocative of Ireland in the early decades of the 20th Century, funny and moving, and featuring memorable performances, God Bless the Child is a must see.

It has been adapted for stage and is directed by Patrick Talbot, and stars Ciaran Bermingham, Shane Casey and Gary Murphy. For more information and for booking see the Viking Theatre Website
