"Ennis and Moy are a dream team, and Moran has said that she managed to get the two best actors she knows for her writing debut. They physically inhabit each new character at breakneck speed making each one completely believable and unique. There is also an enviable creative team behind the scenes. The audience last night was completely enchanted by the play …Not to be missed." No More Workhorse: Review
"Airplane meets Hall’s Pictorial Weekly …Moy and Ennis delivering deeply enjoyable and impeccable performances… have you cracking a rib with laughter…. Only in Ireland could you get a hijacking this ridiculous. Or this hilarious. Or this much fun." The Arts Review ****
"Lovingly made, giddily nostalgic comedy…. An enviable team of collaborators seizes every opportunity for embellishment, from earthy comic turns to absurd religious visitations to slick stage effects." The Irish Times
Verdant Productions present
Dates: 25 Jul - 26 Jul
Show Time: 7.30pm
When Airplane meets Father Ted.
A new comedy based on the 1981 hijacking of an Aer Lingus plane by an ex-Trappist monk with a bottle of water as his weapon, the Pope as his nemesis and a burning desire to know The Third Secret of Fatima.
Step on the plane with us and experience this most Irish of hijackings. There’ll be music, nostalgia, heroism, praying, visions, romance (maybe) sex (maybe) a special appearance by Our Lady (definitely). There’ll even be a miracle. I swear.
Click for instant happiness.

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020 Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored.
