Jim Nolan talks about Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye

Waterford-based playwright and director Jim Nolan is bringing Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye on tour this month and next with the assistance of Garter Lane Theatre.

The show plays here at the Watergate on Wednesday 22 March.

Set in a provincial newspaper office in the Irish Midlands in the run up to Easter 2016, the privately owned Inishshannon Chronicle has just been acquired by a media conglomerate and the new brush is about to sweep clean.

As the newspaper’s staff adjust to radical changes in its structure and ethos, the town it serves prepares to celebrate a tenuous connection to the Easter Rising. The revelation that this connection is not quite what it seems puts the Chronicle’s editor on a collision course with both his new bosses and the local business and political community.

Ahead of the show, Jim spoke to Ken McGuire on KCLR96FM about the impact of the story, the reaction to its debut in 2016 and what exactly Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye is all about.

Take a listen below and book your tickets here before Wednesday night.

All about Dalloway with Rebecca Vaughan

Rebecca Vaughan in Dalloway

1923: THE WAR IS OVER. While Clarissa Dalloway prepares a party in Westminster, Septimus Smith is diagnosed with shell-shock, and their memories and dreams magically intertwine with those of 15 other disparate souls, this hot blue day in June. Conjuring the hopes and regrets of middle and upper-class London, this adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s celebrated map of hearts, minds and memories offers a compellingly feminine response to the aftermath of the First World War.

Book tickets here for Dalloway

Written and directed by Elton Townend Jones (The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe). Performed by Rebecca Vaughan (Female Gothic, I, Elizabeth, Austen’s Women).

Earlier this week, Rebecca spoke to KCLR about Dalloway and what keeps her coming back to Kilkenny. Press play below to hear the full interview.
