Brigit; Bailegangaire; A Thief of a Christmas
Read Ebooks - its cool!



I'd like it to be perfect . . . Beautiful . . . The statue . . . Unbeatable? . . . I'd like it to be what I feel . . . And I don't know what that is.

Set in the 1950s, Brigit, a prequel to Murphy's critically-acclaimed Bailegangaire (1985), tells the story of Mommo and Séamus, grandparents living on the breadline, who are raising three grandchildren: Mary, Dolly and Tom, when Séamus is offered a job to carve a statue of St Brigit.

Brigit premiered in September 2014, in a production by Druid Theatre Company, Galway, Ireland.


'One of the finest and most inventive pieces of Irish dramatic writing ever - the power of its language soaring beyond the loftiest aspirations of Synge and its insights on the human spirit cutting deeper than O'Casey's' - Sunday Independent

A Thief of a Christmas

'Grand opera . . . both timeless and contemporary' - Fintan O'Toole
