Defender of the Faith
Theatre - Monday 20th & Tuesday 21st October
at Linenhall Theatre
Galway-based Decadent Theatre is back with one of the most anticipated productions of 2014. Defender of the Faith is the debut play of Stuart Carolan, who went on to create and write RTÉ's phenomenally successful LOVE/HATE. Defender of the Faith is a thriller set on a farm in Armagh 1986. The play tells the story of a family, entrenched in paramilitarism and under the constant watch of British forces. When a visitor arrives with the job of rooting out a police informer, paranoia grips the farm. Joe, his son Thomas, and a long-serving farm hand, Barney, all fall under suspicion...The family's isolated farm becomes the setting for the electrifying exploration of a family tested by loyalty and love. Defender Of The Faith is blackly comic and chillingly real, with an atmosphere taut with tension. Directed by Andrew Flynn.
"A sinister thriller... crackerjack suspense." - Mark Blankenship, Variety
