Local Wicklow man to stage self penned play

Wicklow born actor writer and musician Kevin C. Olohan has written a new play about the history of and contemporary life in Wicklow Town. “Curse of the Toothless One” is a comedy that tells the story of four local friends, attempting to tell the complete history of the town, from St. Patrick’s landing, and the Viking Invasion, through the opening of the Historic Gaol and its role in the 1798 Rebellion, right up to the lives of young people living in Wicklow today.

The play will have its inaugural production as part of the Scene and Heard Festival at Smock Alley Theatre on Lower Exchange Street Temple Bar in Dublin’s City Centre, is an annual festival of new writing which gives emerging artists a platform to experiment new ideas of work in a risk free environment.

He will also act as director and perform in the play alongside three other rising actors: Rory Corcoran, Sophie Jo Wasson and Meg Healy.

Directly after this play Kevin will return to Germany to complete the tour with the show “World of Musicals” which has been running for the past three months all across Germany.
