Mulcahy Play

Michael Hilliard Mulcahy.

KERRY playwright and actor Michael Hilliard Mulcahy is taking his one man play ‘After Sarah Miles’ on the road later this month.

The  Castlegregory man hopes to perform the play in communities and villages all over Kerry and beyond throughout the Spring and Summer of 2016.

‘After Sarah Miles’ chronicles 35 years in the life of ‘Bobeen’, a Dingle fisherman whose first job (as a fourteen year old) is on the set of Ryan’s Daughter, where Robert Mitchum buys him his very first drink and Sarah Miles is the subject of his first serious crush.

Bobeen is still longing for the American dream long after the film crew pull out of town. However, life becomes a bit of rollercoaster until one fateful evening when a bottlenose dolphin guides his boat into Dingle Bay….

The play was first performed by actor Don Wycherley to rave reviews. Emer O’Kelly of the Sunday Independent called it ‘a lilting wonder of exquisite exploration.’

Actress Juliet Mills (daughter of Sir John Mills who won an Oscar for his part on ‘Ryan’s Daughter’) hailed it as a wonderful play and performance.

Hollywood producer/screenwriter Bob Bibb was also taken by the play after seeing it in Hilliard Mulcahy’s native Camp village last summer. He has now begun work on a film script of the play.

Mulcahy’s previous work was the hugely successful ‘Beyond the Brooklyn Sky’ which was a big hit at the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2012. He has completed a third play ‘Symphony to the Sea’ which he hopes to have produced in 2017. He has also started work on a new play and a short film script.

‘After Sarah Miles’ kicks off the season in The Chapel On The Hill in Killorglin on Wednesday April 27th at 8pm, The Old School House at Muckross farm village in Killarney on Thursday April 28th at 8pm and in An Diseart, Dingle (as part of Féile na Bealtaine) on Friday, April 29 at the earlier time of 7pm.
