TWO LORD MAYORS (2020)

About

Presented by The Everyman in association with Patrick Talbot Productions
19 Dec 2020

The Everyman presented a rehearsed reading of Two Lord Mayors, by James McKeon and Patrick Talbot, as part of Play It by Ear, a programme of shows for The Everyman stage and available on live audio broadcast.

Two Lord Mayors is a new play inspired by the extraordinary events in the city of Cork in 1920 and two men at the centre of those events.

The play focusses on the last day of the life of Lord Mayor Tomás MacCurtain before his murder by Crown forces. The play then follows his successor, Lord Mayor Terence MacSwiney in the lead up to his arrest and his subsequent hunger strike in Brixton Prison London.

Two Lord Mayors is a portrait of two men in the prime of their lives. It seeks to understand their motivations as soldiers and public servants and the cause that defined them.
