"PRIMAL is a new play by award-winning Cork writer Ciarán Collins, author of bestselling novel ‘The Gamal’, and the theatrical debut of award-winning screen director Shaun O Connor.

Set in the offices of academia, the story begins with a professor, a student, and a simple accusation of plagiarism. But as the narrative unfolds it becomes clear that there’s much more at stake — for both parties.

PRIMAL is a brutally honest examination of male relationships and power hierarchies, exploring the potential for darkness inside everyone – and how easily the veneer of civility can be wiped away when someone is pushed to their limits.

This tense drama, punctuated by distinctly Cork humour, builds to a stunning conclusion that will leave audiences discussing it long after the performance has ended.

Starring Jack Walsh (The Tudors, Killinaskully, Fair City) and Tommy Harris (The Young Offenders, Wet Paint, Rebellion).

‘Primal’ is Ciarán and Shaun’s first creative collaboration. It’s also individually their first theatrical project and they look forward to developing more work for the stage and in particular with the Cork Arts Theatre."

This production is made possible by the Cork Arts Theatre and the Arts Council Emerging Artists Programme.

“The Cork Arts Theatre’s Emerging Artists Programme was the perfect opportunity to develop our first theatrical project with local financial and creative support. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring ‘Primal’ to the Cork Arts Theatre stage and gaining the experience to develop future theatrical projects. We’re also looking forward to developing an ongoing creative relationship with the Cork Arts Theatre.” – ‘PRIMAL’ CREATIVE TEAM

It’s from an Irish word. Don’t even know exactly
what it means
but I’ve a fair idea . . .'
