After the Rising, Michael Collins put together a list of the hardiest shcans in all 32 counties to form an elite military unit.

This unit embarked on a campaign of subterfuge, misinformation, political assassination, espionage and general divilment.

So begins the tale of The Hellfire Squad!

This new play from Peter McGann and John Morton is a fiercely comical, action-packed story of mismatched assassins with different agendas but the same targets.

The legend of Collins’ Squad has been printed. Now the seven-man squad and their no-nonsense handler ‘The Bould’ Kathleen Sweeney are telling their tale, one as powerful, tragic and frighteningly absurd as the history from which it sprung.

The Devious Theatre Company was founded in Kilkenny in 2006. In 2016, they stage Devious 10, a programme of new and old work celebrating a decade of theatre. The company works across a number of genres but stays rooted in a style of comedy, developed over the years. In 2011, they became the first theatre artists-in-residence in Kilkenny Arts Office; the company also won a PPI Award for Radio Drama. Devious’ work has featured at Cork Midsummer Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival and Galway Theatre Festival, among others. Previous presentations here at Project Arts Centre include War Of Attrition and Scratcher (as part of The Theatre Machine Turns You On).
