In the Name of the Son – The Gerry Conlon Story
What would you do if you received over £1 million pounds, became the subject of a hit movie, went to the Oscars and got to hang out with Daniel Day-Lewis?
This incredible true story chronicles the aftermath of Gerry Conlon’s release from prison, where he spent 14 years as one of the Guildford Four – a group wrongly convicted of a bombing by the IRA during one of the deadliest periods of the Irish Troubles.
With his ordeal transformed into a celebrated film (In the Name of the Father), Conlon enjoyed instant fame and fortune, though his freedom was just as quickly stifled by addiction. Shaun Blaney portrays Conlon’s life as it spirals out of control with gripping authenticity. Don’t miss this deeply affecting one-man play that’s drawn standing ovations all over the UK.
