Believing in Butterflies – A play by John Haskins
Performed by: Coolmine Drama Circle
Saturday, 24th February 2018, 8pm
Bobby, a brash Dubliner, Brendan, the local priest, and Anna, a young UK philosophy professor, are unexpectedly thrown together for a night in a B&B, run by islander Margaret, on a small island in the West of Ireland. With escalating intensity, difficult truths surface as the four confront each other in facing their personal demons. Laced with humour and startling honesty, the story explores contemporary Irish issues and the final outcome is both unexpected and deeply poignant.
Believing in Butterflies is the debut play by John Haskins, an award-winning poet and short story writer who finds his writing inspiration in the Louisburgh area where he mostly resides.
