ANU Productions and Landmark Productions, Ireland

The Book of Names

In days of upheaval a new resilience has taken hold.

Two of Ireland’s leading theatre companies collaborate for the first time, to present a hugely ambitious co-production that plots a singular path through one of the most secretive, contentious and turbulent times in Irish history.

Drawing on two 100-year old books—a unique historical ledger which documents in careful detail the names, ages and roles of every employee in Dublin Port, and an intelligence dossier containing names and photographs of potential targets—The Book of Names tells a tale of espionage, high stakes and a deadly game of historical doublethink.

Age: 16+

Warnings: Contains loud noises, violence, adult themes and
references to death.
