Drama at Inish by Lennox Robinson
6th-10th May, 2008. The Mill Theatre, Dundrum.
A farce about a repertory company who come to the village of Inish and perform dark psychologically introspective works from the likes of Chekov, Strindberg and Ibsen. The inhabitants start to develop neuroses, complexes and inhibitions like the characters of the plays. Finally the villagers get fed up with all this navel-gazing and drive the company out in favour of being entertained by the circus.
