Irish Studies Program presents Blinkered

Blinkered, an Irish play that takes a look at the impact of depression and suicide, presented by Derry based Sole Purpose Production.  The play is directed by Shauna Kelpie and the highly talented cast includes: Patrick McBrearty, Cathy Brennan Bradley, Pat Lynch and Gemma Walker.

Speaking about the play, writer Patricia Byrne explained: “When I was writing Blinkered, I had to get inside the head of this young man who is contemplating suicide and struggling with depression. But I also had to get into the heads of the people around him -- his mother, his father, his sister. This play carries the message that we can say the word suicide, that we can have these conversations. We don’t have to keep quiet.”


Co-Produced by the Hofstra University Irish Studies Program, The Irish American Society and The New York Irish Center.
