1934, a rural pub in a village on the south coast of Ireland. Returned Yank, Johnny Kinnane has eight hours to salvage the rapidly decaying carcass of a sixty foot whale. General Eoin O’Duffy plans to attend the Blueshirt Dance in the Parish Hall while a 16 year old would-be jockey dreams of victory in the Cemetery Sunday Races and a Jewish refugee with a clarinet and a clapped-out truck sets out to make a new life for himself and his daughter. An electricity generating bicycle, an open air jazz dance and a daring triumph of the imagination in a climate of communal hysteria – these are just some of the elements which combine to form Jim Nolan’s new play, Dreamland.
