Here Comes the Night by Rosemary Jenkinson

September 8, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

The American Irish Historical Society are once again proud to support Origin’s 1st Irish Festival 2016, and welcome you to Here Comes The Night a play by Rosemary Jenkinson on Thursday, September 8, 2016.

From one of Northern Ireland’s most respected writers, Here Comes The Night, set in 1966 and 2016 is a playful, thrilling and hilarious take on love, family and loyalties, asking important questions about our identity and remembrance. Here Comes The Night tells the story of Vincent and Mary Gallagher living in East Belfast in November 1966. Vincent is trying to finish his short story based on the Easter Rising, but Mary and the local priest want him to stop writing, fearing the reaction to such an explosive story.

This event is support by The Northern Ireland Bureau, The Arts Council of Northern Ireland and The British Council, Northern Ireland.

Tickets are now sold out for this event. For information on other 1st Irish Festival
