Wood Quay Amphitheatre
-ANONYMOUS by Mark Richardson, Directed by Nathalie Clement, Produced by Purple Hare Theatre Company

-ANONYMOUS opens with Sean, a poet and the self-proclaimed oldest homeless man in Dublin, entertaining the crowd with his poetry. Enters Dolan, fresh out on the streets, lacking shoes and judgement. He is looking for a safe place to sleep and a way out of his current predicament. As they tease and gauge each other, we find out what brought them both to the streets of Dublin. As their past comes back to haunt them, the question arises of what their futures will be...

Mark Richardson's -ANONYMOUS engages the audience through a reflection on homelessness in today’s Dublin. It humorously navigates timeless yet current topics such as prejudice, marriage, addiction, and friendship. The play has many facets which will entertain, unnerve and enlighten the audience to the humanity hidden at every street corner.

The Cast of -ANONYMOUS includes Zeff Lawless (Sean), Joe Clinton (Dolan), Conor Duffy (Dwayne), Fiona Coughlan (Marie) and Jordan Begley (Fiachra).

"Closing with multiple curtain calls after a surprising ending Anonymous is an important and valuable play that can both entertain and touch the heart of the audience." Laura Mariott, The Reviews Hub

“This play is amazing...Wonderfully served by Nathalie Clement's direction, Mark Richardson's beautifully written script leads the audience through a reflection on homelessness in our society. Always poetic, sometimes dramatic, the play is also funny and entertaining. Casting and actor's performance are on point... Zeff, Brendan, Conor, Nathalie and Joe give life to their character in a realistic yet so endearing way. Zeff Lawless is outstanding in the part of Sean the poet. This is a must-see play!”

"Went to see this play last night and was completely blown away. (...) The acting was mesmerizing and so realistic. (...) You forgot that you were in a theatre and not on the streets of Dublin."
