"Outstanding" "Chilling" IRISH NEWS
"Gary Crossan’s portrayal of the once wise-cracking Lee unravelling as he tried to cope with the shocking events of 1975 was, for me, the stand out performance of the show. Other favourites for me were Niall McNamee as the talented and adored Fran O’Toole and Chris Mohan as the swaggering Dickie Rock." NEWSLETTER
