Out and About

Eblana members have enjoyed some literary nights out recently.   The Gate’s production of My Cousin Rachel was one not to be missed, especially with a visit from Joseph O’Connor pending later in the year.  Joseph’s adaptation succeeded in holding the emotional tension and intrigue of Daphne du Maurier’s book keeping the audience captive from curtain up to curtain call.

The Zebbie Awards, named in honour of O.Z Whitehead, were held by the Irish Playwrights’ & Screenwriters’ Guild in the Sugar Club on May 10th and hosted by an exuberant Senator David Norris.   The awards honoured some of Ireland’s best script writers, with best script for TV drama going to Stuart Carolan’s Love/Hate and best feature length script going to Juanita Wilson for As if I am not There.
