A Holy Show by Janet Moran (Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray)

A new comedy based on the 1981 hijacking of an Aer Lingus plane by an ex-Trappist monk with a bottle of water as his weapon, the Pope as his nemesis and a burning desire to know The Third Secret of Fatima.

Step on the plane with them and experience this most Irish of hijackings. There’ll be music, nostalgia, heroism, praying, visions, romance (maybe) sex (maybe) a special appearance by Our Lady (definitely). There’ll even be a miracle. I swear.

Funded through an Arts Council of Ireland Theatre Project Award. Created and Produced by Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre. Script and Play Development co-commissioned by Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre (Bray) and The Pavilion Theatre (Dun Laoghaire) and supported by the Centre Culturel Irlandais (Paris) and Fishamble: New Play Clinic
