The Blue Raincoat Theatre Co. Present Tintown. Tintown is a one-man-show written during a Theatre Artist Residency in Sligo’s Hawk’s Well Theatre. It's about a Dubliner who joined the IRA as a young man in the 30’s, was interned during WW2 and bore witness to the IRA’s decline and eventual collapse within the Curragh Camp. Meticulously researched through access to rare internee interviews, Tintown encompasses our violent past, the development of socialism and fascism within Ireland, and the political contradictions and absurdities of the time.
Written and performed by Bob Kelly and Directed by Niall Henry
