Patrick McBrearty plays Ryan in Sole Purpose’s Blinkered.
Local actor Patrick McBrearty takes the central role of Ryan. Patrick will be familiar to An Grianán audiences from roles in plays such as Frank Pig Says Hello, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Philadelphia, Here I Come!
Starring alongside him are Gemma Walker, Pat Lynch and Cathy Brennan Bradley. Written by Patricia Byrne and directed by Shauna Kelpie, Blinkered follows the story of Ryan, a young man trying to cope with everyday life, and his family, who are busily doing the same. Promising another challenging performance, the play shines a light on the loneliness of depression and its impact on families. Professional representatives working in suicide prevention will be present at each performance.
