The Assassin by LIAM O'FLAHERTY adapted by HUGH LEONARD
Tonight's play is a fictional reconstruction of the murder of Kevin O'Higgins , a leading Irish politician who was gunned down on his way to Mass one Sunday morning in 1927. O'Flaherty, in his novel from which this play is adapted, explores the mind of a man who would perpetrate such a crime. The Assassin's anti-hero threw Ireland into an uproar. His motive is more than revenge and, in settling a debt, he understood that he had a far more personal one to settle with his God.
