Easter. A seaside town. The Protestant church is closing down, and the local undertaker is determined to stage a version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Around these facts, Jim Nolan builds a moving and memorable play in which members of a motley cast search for their private resurrections.

Moonshine was first produced by Waterford’s award-winning Red Kettle Theatre Company before being invited to appear in the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, and before a successful Irish tour.

Jim Nolan’s sensitive and accurate writing as the characters reach a redemption of spirit confirms Moonshine as a play of haunting and lasting quality.

Declan Hassett, The Cork Examiner

Funny, moving, thought-provoking, and with it Jim Nolan confirms all his early promise as a writer.

— Waterford News

The play works on many levels, arguing with itself, challenging its own assumptions, throwing out vivid images in memorable, often astonishing lines. It rises to a deservedly magical ending, winning that rapt silent from the audience which itself asserts drama’s unique power.

— Mark Roper, Waterford Today
