The Restoration of Hope

Matthew Ralli & Philip St. John / Fishamble New Play Clinic

Mermaid hosted a two day Fishamble New Play Clinic. Wicklow Writer Philip St John (High Seas Productions) and Director Matthew Ralli (Speckintime) were back in with us to work on the development of a new piece ‘The Restoration of Hope’ with actors Jody O’Neill, Mark O’Regan, and Will Irvine and dramaturg Annabelle Comyn. Philip’s play is a darkly funny variation on the Faust story set at Christmas-time in Dublin and Wicklow. Will premiere at Mermaid on 17th November.
