The Misfit Mythology


  • Playwright

    Irene Kelleher 

  • Synopsis

    Ireland – 1990. Nelson Mandela was freed; the first female Irish president was inaugurated and the worst song of all time was composed entitled ‘Give it a lash Jack’. But these events are irrelevant to Oisín and Gráinne. Because there is something at the heart of Kilthomas…

    An old legend. A dark history set to repeat itself. People have disappeared without a trace. It is the students final year celebrations. As the they sweat out their frustrations to the sounds of MC Hammer and INXS, the party intensifies. Someone goes missing. And only a diary is found.
