Jim Boylan writes on ‘BRENDAN BEHAN’S TEAPOT’:
‘I became beguiled by Behan after researching his character for this production. Against the backdrop of his idealistic and somewhat naive Irish republicanism Behan did a jig into the spotlight of the 1950s and early 1960s theatre scene and held a mirror up to the moral hypocrisy of institutions such as the state and organised religion.
A brief and brilliant firework of a playwright before his untimely death, Behan was at heart a humanist. He was both wonderfully witty and fatally flawed and it has been a tremendous challenge and an honour to try and capture his essence on stage.’
