Ronan O’Donnell

A suspicious death at the workplace and loner security guard Nick Prentice is hauled in Kafka style for interrogation. Detective Crichton believes he’s got Prentice bang to rights. Nick’s handwritten seedy wee ‘stories’ seem to nail him to the crime. Is Prentice complicit in the death of two-bit shoplifter Gary Glover? Will Hollywood’s uber-babe Scarlett Johansson rescue our unlikely antihero? David Lynch meets Rebus in this uproarious, underworld whodunnit, reworking the hardboiled crime thriller for our times.

In this intoxicating and vivid one-man show Ronan O’Donnell evokes both the stifling claustrophobia of the interview room and Prentice’s skewed sense of logic with an inimitable and visceral writing style. Brilliantly surreal and blackly funny, Angels marks O’Donnell out as one of Scotland’s most exciting theatrical voices.

Doll Tower, The

Ronan O’Donnell

A challenging and thought-provoking play about T. E. Lawrence and his life after Arabia.

It's 1922, and T. E. Lawrence (of Arabia), is now plain T. E. Shaw (of Dorset). He is encamped incognito with his bodyguard John Bruce, and the other raw recruits at Bovington Tanks. Seven Pillars of Wisdom comes up against the hangover from the Great War...
