Irish Coffee
On from 10 Oct 2019 to 03 Nov 2019
Calder Bookshop and Theatre
by Eva Halac

Tickets: £15 / (£12 concessions)

It's the beginning of the 60's in Argentina, and two journalists try to find out where the body of Eva Peron is hidden.

A time of political violence and popular revolt, and it is in this seething atmosphere that journalists Rodolfo Walsh and Tomas Eloy Martinez have an idea for an exclusive article to sell to Paris Match Magazine. Together, they embark on an investigation to find out where the abducted corpse of Eva Peron has been hidden by the dictatorship that deposed her husband. As they follow their dark path, they meet with that of the reticent, obsessive Colonel Moori Koenig and his wife, who keeps a few secrets of her own.

Irish Coffee tells the story of a doomed investigation, woven into fiction from very real events first by Walsh in a short story, then by Martinez in a novel, and now by Eva Halac in this very play. Newly translated into English, it poses stinging questions for our political present about the urge for action beyond the written word and whether impartiality is ever possible

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Eva Perons birth, so we are bringing a new play to the Calder Bookshop & Theatre that explores a little-known aspect of her legacy.

5 Stars
"Well staged at the John Calder Bookshop Theatre, this is an extraordinary piece."
Camden New Journal
