The National Opera House is delighted to be hosting what promises to be an exciting night of brand new Irish theatre on Friday, 2 March, in the shape of A Story Of Destiny, written and performed by Carrick-On-Suir artist, Robert Power.

The play is described as a one-act psychological thriller set in an institution with a splash of dark comedy. The story surrounds the murder of a young woman and the existence of a man who claims his exile for the crime but all is not what it seems. Themes of the play include love, loss, revenge and the nature of humanity. From the beginning of the piece it is clear this character is not to be taken lightly, as he casually claims that “in the grander scheme of things” the story he is about to tell, is “much deeper than the murder of a young woman”. 

Having had its premiere at Under St. Marks in Greenwich Village, New York City last year, the piece has now evolved from a minimalist work into an exciting full-scale production which promises to entertain, engage and, who knows, perhaps even enlighten.  Robert Power is also a musician whose work has been described by Hotpress Magazine as “powerful, heartfelt and thought-provoking”. A Story Of Destiny is set to tour the country and this solo performance, from an actor who is described as “a superbly gifted performer” by Olivier Award Winner, established London based theatre director and Wexford native, Donnacadh O Briain, is not to be missed.
