Bat The Father Rabbit The Son

Bat the Father Rabbit The SonIt's 1988, and haulage magnate Rabbit drags his minion Keogh on a demented quest for contentment, haunted by his deceased father, Irish Citizen Army volunteer Bat.
The struggle between father and son, past and present, imagination and reality, builds to a climax described by The Guardian as "one of the strongest dramatic conclusions I've ever seen".
"Purely brilliant" New York Post
"Wild slapstick tour de force
" New York Times
"Magnificent script and performance" Scotsman. 

Ailliliú Fionnuala

Ailliliu FionnualaIn Erris Co. Mayo, Rabbit's one-time minion Keogh has become a successful Shell executive with some sinister secrets. He's forced to reveal what he knows when he is confronted by Fionnuala of the Children of Lir in a fairy fort.  Coming face to face with his former classmate Malachy brings past crimes back to life, and gives Keogh choices he never considered before.
