Mount Prospect




12:00 am


Following its previous and highly acclaimed collaborations on Blackwater Angel by Jim Nolan (2014) and Wife to James Whelan by Teresa Deevy (2016), Garter Lane Arts Centre and WIT return to the stage in November with the first production in eight decades of Mount Prospect by Una Troy.

Premiered at the Abbey Theatre in 1940 and adapted from the novel of the same name, Mount Prospect reveals the character of a destructive widow who uses her husband’s will to advance her own son over two children from his first marriage. A savage critique of class prejudice and the position of unmarried women in 1930’s Ireland, Mount Prospect will be directed by Arts Council Theatre Artist in Residence at Garter Lane, Jim Nolan, with Set, Sound and Graphic Design from students of the School of Humanities at WIT.
