The Story of Maureen O’Hara

Written/performed by Elaine O’Dwyer

Directed by Gráinne Byrne

Belltable | Friday, February 21st | 8pm | €18/€16

The 2020 national tour of Queen of Technicolor –The Story of Maureen O’ Hara celebrates 100 years of Maureen O’ Hara who was born on August 17th 1920.
Witness how Maureen O’ Hara navigated her way from humble Irish beginnings to reach the top of the Hollywood tree whilst remaining true to herself and steering clear of the dreaded casting couch. Within a stream of chronological and flashback scenes, O’ Dwyer portrays over twenty characters in this tour-de-force, taking you on an intimate journey with Maureen and revealing the real woman behind the limelight. The vanity case used in the show is the original case which belonged to Maureen O’ Hara.

“Elaine possesses a rather ethereal quality which perfectly captures the play’s dream-like quality.” (Time and the Conways -Deborah Harris, Essential Surrey)
Elaine O’Dwyer is a Limerick born actress and writer who trained as a primary school teacher before going on to train as an actress, her true vocation, at the Guilford School of Acting in the UK. She is currently based in London.
Elaine first performed ‘Queen of Technicolor- The Story of Maureen O’ Hara’ in November 2018 at Belltable to mark the third year anniversary of Maureen O’ Hara’s passing. Elaine’s urgency to get this show on stage was triggered by the #MeToo and the #TimesUp movements which correlated so much with Maureen’s story.
