 Blog  /  News 

A reading was held at the National Opera House last November of Jim Nolan’s new play, Castel Gandolfo. The work has gone through several drafts and the reading was held to identify any areas that need further tweaking ahead of the production of the play in 2024. Ben Barnes will direct with designs by Dermot Quinn (set), John Comiskey (lighting), Jeni Roddy (costume) and Jamie Beamish (sound). Rehearsals have begun and the play will take the stage at Garter Lane, Waterford later this year. Cast details will be announced shortly.

Both Jim Nolan and Ben Barnes were in attendance at the reading and the reading cast were – Anna Healy, Brian Doherty, Anthony Brophy, Catherine Walker and Elishka Lane.
