Starring Donegal native Seán McGinley in the lead role of Columba/Colmcille, our production of The Enemy Within is one of the key events of the Colmcille 1500 commemorations, marking the life and legacy of Colmcille 1500 years on from his birth.

Directed by fellow Donegal native Caitríona McLaughlin, the newly announced Artistic Director of the Abbey Theatre, the production will welcome in person audiences to An Grianán, and will also be available to watch as a digital production from home.

A major early work by Friel, who made Donegal his home, The Enemy Within examines a period in the life of Colmcille as a mature man, having worked in his ministry for many years and settled in his monastery in Iona yet still subject to the demands of his turbulent family clan in Donegal. The action takes place in the autumn of 587 on the island of Iona, off the West coast of Scotland.

The stellar cast also includes Liam Carney, Bosco Hogan, Ciaran McGlynn, Charlie Bonner, Sean Donegan, Francis Harkin, Ronan Carr, Jack Quinn and Aidan Moriarty.
