Be Infants in Evil

By Brian Martin, Directed by Oonagh Murphy

World Premiere

'The only time there can ever be love is when there’s life, and that’s now.'

Fr. Patrick is newly appointed to a parish in Dublin. In his sacristy one morning he decides he has to face the inevitable. But two of his parishioners have other ideas. There is Noleen, a blind widow who knows more than she lets on to know, and Jacinta, an unmarried mother and recent Muslim convert who wants it in writing thats she’s left the church. Then there is Henry, a thirteen year-old boy who decides that this is the time to visit his old friend.

At once playfully comic and uncompromisingly savage, Be Infants in Evil is an outstanding debut that complicates the story of modern Ireland, just when we thought we had it all figured out.

Be Infants in Evil was staged as a rehearsed reading at Galway Arts Festival 2013 as part of the Druid Debuts Series.
