The Hand of Gaul

Jared Michael Delaney
Season 9: 2012-2013
World Premiere
United States of America

The Hand of Gaul was part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts 2013 (PIFA), which posed the question “if you had a time machine…where would you go?” Inis Nua’s answer is November 14, 2009, when Ireland was knocked out of 2010 World Cup competition by the unchecked foul of French superstar, Thierry Henry. Three fiercely proud (albeit not overly bright) Irish fans decide to avenge their team. This Inis Nua original takes on World Cup elimination and a nation’s pride as international intrigue, a rare Belgian beer and the world’s most popular sport come together in unexpected ways.
