Shades Repertory Theater Presents

The Informer

Adapted for the stage by Joe McDonald

Directed By

Kathleen Koster

Adapted from Liam O'Flaherty's powerful novel, The Informer is set in the aftermath of the Irish Civil War, illuminating the tragic conflict that divides Ireland today. It is a story of political betrayal, a sin long detested in Irish history.
Gypo Nolan, a brute of a man in need of food and shelter, informs on a comrade wanted by the authorities. With his twenty pounds' reward, he sets off on a binge through Dublin's pubs and brothels. He is hunted down by Dan Gallagher, a ruthless leader of the outlawed Revolutionary Organization. It is a contest between two wills - one, pure animal force; the other, ideological passion, which in the end brings both retribution and salvation.
