The Saviour

By Deirdre Kinahan

Ebook £9.99£7.99

There's a new man in Máire's life. But some people aren't happy.

It's the morning of her sixty-seventh birthday, and Máire is sitting up in bed, enjoying a cigarette. There's a man downstairs. She is blooming.

Charting the extraordinary shift in social, political and religious life in Ireland over the past thirty years, The Saviour asks questions about responsibility, about how we respond to trauma, and about the tricky question of forgiveness.

Deirdre Kinahan's blistering play for two actors was first presented online as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2021 by Landmark Productions, using the auditorium of The Everyman, Cork, as a backdrop.

Irish Examiner

'Gripping and very, very powerful'

RTÉ Arena

'A powerful drama that touches on strong issues of family and religion, lightened with some nice touches of humour'
