In 1921 his friend and leader Eamon de Valera ordered Michael Collins to travel to London, with the Irish delegation, to negotiate the Treaty that followed the Truce and the War of Independence. Churchill was Colonial Secretary in charge of Ireland, and the two men were prepared to detest one another. Yet, at a point when the Treaty talks seemed to be in stasis, Churchill and Collins spent a night drinking together, talking, arguing, even singing and reciting poetry. They emerged from this session fascinated by each other. This superb play by Mary Kenny explores the evening that changed Irish History.
Featuring Rory Garrett Moran as Winston Churchill, Rory Seamus Moran as Michael Collins and Paul O’Gorman as William Evans, Churchill’s Servant.
The Play was written by Mary Kenny and Directed by Jason Byrne.
