Against The Wind, by Seamus Lucason
Directed by Ray Arsenault
Time and circumstance bring Tommy Maloney to enlist in the Irish Women’s Movement for equality and independence in 1905 Ireland
Mark Tomás (Tommy) Maloney, a vagrant fisherman living on a bench in 1905, Dublin, Ireland, is approached by Hannah Devlin, a member of The Daughters of Erin, who wishes to place a poster on the lamppost where Tommy resides. Andrew Drummond, a Dublin Metropolitan Police Officer, discovers the poster and brings Tomás to the police station where he is questioned – and soundly beaten. The resulting action brings Tommy to enlist in the Irish Women’s Movement toward independence.
Written by Seamus Lucason, Steve Berger reads Tomás Mahoney, Heather Ferrari reads Hannah Devlin and Robert Murphy reads Andrew Drummond. The play is directed by Ray Arsenault and Ralph Brown is the video editor.
