The Gamal
by Ciarán Collins
(Bloomsbury 2013)


Long Night's Journey Into Day
Long Night's Journey Into Day
is a full-length play set in Cork city in the late 1990s. It revolves around the inhabitants of two adjoining street houses -one house containing university students, the other a local working class family. As the events of the night unfold, these two worlds collide. 

Primal is a twohander one-act play portraying a meeting between a university professor and feckless student who happens to be romantically involved with the professor's daughter.

Short Stories
The Gamal is Ciarán Collins' only completed novel, but he has written many short stories, among them Hitching Home and You See Sea.
