 A writer arrives in 1950’s Ireland to write the screenplay for a film adaption of Melville’s ‘Moby Dick.’ As he struggles for creative inspiration for his film script, he becomes intimidated by a group of beggars laying siege to his hotel and haunted by one possibly blind accordion player on O’Connell Bridge, Dublin.  The performance takes its inspiration from the science fiction writer Ray Bradbury’s realist tale, ’The Beggar on O’Connell Bridge' and his experience of writing the film adaption of ‘Moby Dick' for the Hibernophile director John Huston. A chorus of beggars evoke mid- 20th century Ireland with the simple props and means at their disposal, befitting their outsider status. They weave a comic- tragic tale that resonates down all the days to contemporary Ireland. Themes of writer’s block, where does creative inspiration come from, what and who do you believe, what price compassion on the slippery slope of life, run through this dark, comedic fable. Devised and directed by Mitch Mitchelson with the company during a series of Theatre Laboratory workshops facilitated by the Ramor Theatre, Virginia, Ireland.
