The Mysterious History of Things at the Viking Theatre

24 Jul 2016 - 05 Aug 2016 Viking Theatre, The Sheds, 198 Clontarf road

When two people arrive at the home of a historian, it is clear they are each on a mission. The Mysterious History of Things takes a wry look at the current obsession with fame and celebrity. The desire of people to see their names inscribed in History leads to intense and devious stratagems. This light-hearted but provocative comedy pokes fun at the vanity of the rich and powerful and at the most revered accounts of our national past. Can history be written to order? Can it be re-written?


This comedy is written by Jack Harte and Directed by Bairbre Ni Chaoimh. For more see the Viking Theatre Website
