The Everyman, in association with Irishtown Productions, presented a rehearsed reading of Second City Trilogy: When I Was God, by Cónal Creedon, as part of Play It by Ear, a programme of shows for The Everyman stage and available on live audio broadcast.

The trilogy comprises of three stage plays (The Cure, When I Was God and After Luke) conceived as a tragicomic exploration of various father-son relationships, set against the social, historical and topographical background of Cork City.

WHEN I WAS GOD

It’s FAI Cup Final day. Referee Dino Keegan is retiring from the game. At half-time the spotlight of self-doubt shines directly down on Dino as the ghosts of his past visit him in his dressing room. On the field of dreams the referee is God, but what happens when God is made man?
