Set in Northern Ireland in 2017, CONTINUITY is a forensic examination of the soul of an Irish ‘freedom fighter’. Pádraig Devlin is a dissident Irish Republican, who begins to have doubts about his commitment to The Cause after he meets and falls in love with a woman from Barcelona. Soon after meeting her, Pádraig botches three assignments in a row.
The other members of his terrorist cell decide to test the love-struck Pádraig’s commitment. Has falling in love really weakened the resolve of a man determined to re-ignite the struggle for Irish freedom, and whose Republican credentials are beyond reproach? And just exactly what kind of test do they plan to set him? And how will Pádraig react when he discovers that he’s being tested… CONTINUITY is the story of a man who begins to question everything he has ever fought for – and marks a stunning debut from a brand new playwright.
Starring Paul Kennedy and written by Gerry Moynihan, CONTINUITY is presented by Mark Stuart Flynn in association with Neil McPherson for the Finborough Theatre and was presented in 2017.
The play is 75 minutes long. The play is available until 31st December 2020.
