“A strong contender for the Best New Play of the Year “ Sunday Times

Faith by Paul Meade was produced by Gúna Nua Theatre in association with the Civic Theatre, Tallaght, Dublin opening in March 2014 at the Civic Theatre before a nationwide tour.

Michael struggles with redundancy and his new role as a stay-at-home husband. He meets the charismatic Chris, who offers him hope along with a job as a security guard. But soon, this friendship leads to tensions on the home front and the disapproval of Michael’s wife, Maeve.
