description

Stewart Roche is the Artistic Director of PurpleHeart. His first original play ‘Revenant’ had its world premiere at The New Theatre in November 2013. It was nominated for the 2014 Stewart Parker award and is currently on tour. His latest play ‘Variance’ has just finished a two week run at Theatre Upstairs and was produced by Timador productions.

Caroline FitzGerald was Resident Director and Assistant Artistic Director at the Abbey Theatre in the early 1990s where she specialised in new work by well-known and emerging playwrights, including Sebastian Barry, Jennifer Johnston, Dermot Bolger, Fergus Linehan and Ulick O'Connor. Caroline's most recent productions include ‘Click’ by Michael Collier (New Theatre and on tour); ‘Weighing in’ by Ger Gallagher (Civic Theatre); ‘Overtime’ by Jane Mc Carthy (New Theatre); ‘Baglady’ by Frank McGuinness (Focus Theatre and on tour) and ‘Jo Bangles’ by Dave Lorden (Focus). 

We are very excited to bring Tracer to the stage but your support is vital if we are to make this a reality. The money raised by this fundit campaign will go towards production costs such as set, costume, printing and venue hire. With your help we will be able to do this important new play justice.

PurpleHeart was founded in 1999. We are committed to presenting acclaimed plays from new writers to an Irish audience. These texts aim to provoke, embrace, reflect, and articulate the interests and needs of a contemporary audience. Purple Heart emphasis excellence in performance to realise a wholly striking theatrical event.

Reviews for ‘Revenant’

“Roche's script is a spikenard of playful savagery along with a wealth of sardonic wit....blending the spine-tingling shiver with the knowing smile...genuinely chilling... Simon Toal is a one-man continuum of entertainment.” – The Irish Independent

“Artfully constructed....full of fresh quips and media in-jokes... there is something much funnier and darker beneath the surface; a moral satire about art where any epitome of evil will be indulged, so long as they are consummate professionals.” - The Irish Times

“A thoroughly superb production, great entertainment for everybody.” – The Public Reviews
