A Whistle in the Dark

7 A WHISTLE IN THE DARK. Enniscorthy Drama Group will stage its production of A Whistle in the Dark in the National Opera House on Saturday, August 27 at 8 p.m. The play by Tom Murphy first premiered in 1961 at the Theatre Royal Stratford East London having being rejected by the Abbey Theatre. It went on to become a West End hit for Murphy who was just 25 years at the time. The three act play tells the story of the climatic confrontation between Michael Carney, the oldest of the Carney brothers, his father and his brothers, a brawling, hard-drinking, criminal gang of Irish immigrants living and working in Coventry. The play is a powerful portrayal of tribal violence and the devastation it brings in its wake.
