Description

Based on the writings of Frank O'Connor, this outstanding drama captures the life and times of Michael Collins as he graduates from organising prison breaks and escapades during the Irish War of Independence to commanding the official army of the newly-formed Free State.

The Big Fellow is an imaginative and entertaining piece of non-stop, high-energy theatre, from the action-packed opening images to the gripping conclusion. It is driven by a powerful score composed by Colin Blakey and Cillian McNamara's evocative lighting.
Gerard Adlum and Cillian O Gairbhi give outstanding performances as O'Connor and Collins, intellectual and action man, pacifist and soldier, as they recreate the founding tale of a troubled nation.
