in association with
MULLINGAR CENTRE FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
CTD CITY THEATRE DUBLIN
THE VALLEY OF THE SQUINTING WINDOWS
A new play by Michael Scott
Based on the book by Brinsley MacNamara
Following its sell-out run at Mullingar Centre for the Performing Arts and its nomination for an Irish Times Theatre Award in 2019… Michael Scott’s new play THE VALLEY OF THE SQUINTING WINDOWS based on the book by Brinsley MacNamara comes to the Gaiety theatre in November 2023 for one week including 2 matinees.
Set in 1918, and opening with the infamous “burning of the book” in the village of Delvin, the production is a “tour de force” using new digital video and audio technologies, 12 professional actors, and a large company of “community players” it drags McNamara’s book into the 21st Century while echoing life in “small town Ireland”. The title has become a well known phrase for nosey neighbors and twitching curtains.
With music by 18th Century Irish composer John Field played live, and an electronic score by Michael Scott the production creates a great evening of theatre that will pull you to the edge of your seat.
MacNamara in his depiction of a small Irish village, joins Synge and O’Casey who were despised for their depiction of West of Ireland people and the “Dublin working class”.
The production opens on 7th November, and plays until the 11th November
