City Mission


  • Playwright

    Antoine Ó Flatharta 

  • Synopsis

    A couple in their late fifties come to Dublin from the West of Ireland to find out if a painting discovered by a priest in their attic is a Jack B. Yeats. Fr. McKeown has been visiting the West of Ireland since the 1950s and sees Tom and Peg almost as guardians of his pastoral dreams. Now, during their brief visit, he cries out at the incongruity of seeing them acclimatise to a different way of life in the city.
