DR. FREUD WILL SEE YOU NOW, MR. HITLER....2007
Apr. 07, Saturday play. By Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran started with the true incident of young, bed-wetting Adolf being referred to the newly-opened children's psychiatric hospital in Vienna at the time Sigmund Freud was working there. There is no evidence that the two ever met, but the play uses the potential meeting as a way of investigating what made Hitler tick. The cast included Toby Jones as Hitler and Sophie Winkelmann as Freud's daughter Anna. Allan Corduner was the famous doctor, and Peter Kavanagh directed.

WITH THIS RING....2003
By Wally K. Daly. A comedy with some substance to it: a Catholic divorcee wants to remarry and needs an annulment. The person he wants to marry is nearly thirty years younger. Paul tries to sort things out in the confessional, but things don't work out in quite the way he planned. With Stephen Moore as the divorcee, Sean Barrett as the Irish priest, Jean Boht as the ex-wife and Anna Livia Ryan as the bit of fluff. Dir. Peter Kavanagh.

THE POPE'S BROTHER ....1990
