God Bless the Child, a new play based on stories by Frank O’Connor, will open for a two-week run at the Gaiety next March.

Three of the Cork master’s funniest stories, My Oedipus Complex, The Genius, and First Confession are brought together within a single full-length play, adapted and directed by Patrick Talbot.   

God Bless The Child won rave reviews when it played to packed houses at Cork's Everyman Theatre last year.

Meet young Michael, who goes into mortal combat with his father when he returns from the First World War. Then, get to know Larry, a genius who can’t understand why the world can’t keep up with him.

Perhaps the best-known character is Jackie, who must make his first confession and communion, while also dealing with his obstreperous grandmother.  

God Bless The Child will open at the Gaiety Theatre on Tuesday March 31 2015 for two weeks only.
