One of the most anticipated productions of 2014, Defender of the Faith is the debut play of Stuart Carolan, the author and creator of RTE’S infamous, LOVE/ HATE. Defender of the Faith directed by Andrew Flynn is a brilliant thriller set on a farm in Armagh in 1986. The play tells the story of a family entrenched in paramilitarism and under the constant watch of British forces.
