Talbot's Box

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Thomas Kilroy 

  • Synopsis

    Matt Talbot, the workers' saint (1856-1925), provokes Thomas Kilroy's examination of the idea of sanctity in the modern world. The very incorporation of penance and spiritual search, his conversion from alcoholism to prayer, fasting and self-mortification is sketched in the textured resonances of the idiom of the Dublin streets and in the soaring lyrical versions of his final visions.
