Amongst Men

A new play by Eoghan Rua Finn

Directed by Deirdre Dwyer


The year is 1969 and Seán Walsh, a primary school teacher, plans to commemorate the Irish revolutionary period as it occurred in Wexford with his sixth class pupils. His mother was a Cumann na mBan member and has first-hand knowledge of life before, during and after the War of Independence, knowledge, however, that she prefers to remain secret.

After tragedy strikes, Seán turns to uncovering his mother’s secrets, a mission which puts him in conflict with local political and religious leaders, threatening his job, identity and life.





Eoghan’s plays include The Kill God at National Opera House directed by Laura Way (Red Rock, East Enders, Blood) supported by Arts Council bursary; The Blackstairs Trilogy premiered in The Athenaeum Enniscorthy and toured to Wexford Arts Centre; Sons of Thunder was commissioned by South East Radio to commemorate Wexford’s role in the 1916 Rising and aired on radio in March 2016 and Come Along the Road Until You Stop Dead was produced by Newline Theatre in 2014.
