Caitríona Ennis stars as Emer Hackett, a fearless and determined investigative reporter – her target is the Taoiseach, Manny Spillane, played by Andrew Bennett, a wily political survivor.
Their paths cross in the ruins of an old theatre, set to be the site for a banking centre, which promises to bring wealth to the Irish economy as well to Spillane and his cohorts.
What Emer uncovers sparks a fury of consequences for her newspaper, her colleagues and the political framework of the country.
A new comedy featuring an excellent ensemble company, The Corn Exchange look at what Ireland might have become, 50 years after its independence.
At the Abbey Theatre from the 24th of February to 14th of March
