"Queen of Technicolor" The Story of Maureen O’ Hara
Directed by Gráinne Byrne
Written and performed by Elaine O’ Dwyer, this one-woman show marks the centenary of legendary Irish actress Maureen O’ Hara who was born in 1920. Star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, O’ Hara played roles that often mirrored her true persona as a tough, feisty and courageous woman. She stood her ground in Hollywood and steered clear of the casting couch - “I wasn’t a whore. I was unwilling to make that kind of sacrifice to get a part in a movie.” Portraying over twenty characters in this tour de force performance, O’ Dwyer will take the audience on an intimate journey with Maureen, revealing the person she was behind the limelight. The vanity case used in the play is the original case which belonged to O’ Hara.
