‘Old Boy’ is a new play which explores ‘the culture of silence’ that existed in many secondary schools in Ireland run by religious orders during the 1980s. The play will be set in a Principle’s office in 1982. It will focus on three hard working teachers who attempt to deal with a serious allegation made against one of their colleagues. Over the course of one day, the play will look at how these opposing characters deal with what is happening under their noses. Are questions asked? Are they fully answered? What are the consequences?
This new play is currently in development.
