Directed by Fermanagh born and Festival Associate Adrian Dunbar, more popularly known as Superintendent Hastings in The Line of Duty, we present to you stunning sunset performances of Ohio Impromptu on Devenish Island, a monastic site founded in the 6th century, a short boat ride away from Enniskillen on Lough Erne. It was first performed in 1981 at the Stadium II Theatre in Columbus, Ohio, in a production directed by Alan Schneider starring David Warrilow and later filmed for television by Charles Sturridge in a production starring Jeremy Irons. 

“A chance to soul-search and sightsee at the same time. Can you have your Beckettian cake and eat it?” Dominic Cavandish, The Telegraph
