The Misfit Mythology by Irene Kelleher (2020)


Presented by Mighty Oak Productions and The Everyman
26 Nov 2020

The Everyman and Mighty Oak Productions presented a rehearsed reading of The Misfit Mythology, by Irene Kelleher, as part Play It by Ear, a programme of shows for The Everyman stage and available on live audio broadcast.

“Every small town has its secrets.”

Ireland – 1990. Nelson Mandela was freed; the first female Irish president was inaugurated, and the worst song of all time was composed entitled ‘Give it a lash Jack’. But these events are irrelevant to Oisín and Gráinne. Because there is something at the heart of Kilthomas… An old legend. A dark history set to repeat itself. People have disappeared without a trace. It is the students’ final year celebrations. As they sweat out their frustrations to the sounds of MC Hammer and INXS, the party intensifies. Someone goes missing. And only a diary is found.
