The Great Hunger

Peter Duffys powerful theatrical performance of Patrick Kavanaghs poem. Generally considered to be Patrick Kavanagh’s finest work, "The Great Hunger" sharply delineates a life of economic and imaginative privation. A large part of the hunger the poem describes is sexual; its protagonist is bachelor farmer Patrick Maguire who has spent years at his mother’s beck and call. When she finally dies aged 91, he himself is 65 and has missed the boat in terms of finding a wife and having a family of his own, a source of acute sorrow and regret to him. Peter Duffy himself grew up on a small Monaghan farm so has a ready affinity for Kavanagh’s material which informs and shines through his absorbing interpretation of the work. Tickets €18/€16
