Sixty T.Y. students travelled to Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on Tuesday 26th January to see a production of John B. Keane’s famous play “The Field”. Hollywood actor Brian Dennehy played the central role of the Bull McCabe. The other actors were all well known on both stage and screen. The play was directed by the award winning director Joe Dowling. The drama is set in rural Kerry of fifty years ago and deals with the Irish fixation with land and the conflict between history and progress. An evocative, powerful play enjoyed by all. It is hoped the experience will have inspired the students to attend other professional productions in the future.
