Titled “Juggernaut,” this thought-provoking drama explores the impact of war on a middle-class family and their unexpected entanglement with an Irish rebel.
In this ninety-minute retelling of a play first staged in 1929, David Sears play dives into the emotional and ethical complexities experienced by the family as their once peaceful life is upended by the arrival of a wounded gunman seeking refuge. The audience will be captivated as they witness the daughter of the household falling in love with a British Army officer, only to realize that his life is in grave danger if the stolen secrets he possesses – a list of British operatives in Ireland – were to reach his superiors.
