Dave Duggan

DENIZEN by Dave Duggan is a courtroom drama, written in verse, in which the last republican dissident challenges himself to build a future without violence.
The drama is a ‘speech from the dock’. There is a chorus of guards and an audience of citizens. There is a table of forensic evidence, which takes us through Denizen’s life and actions.

The context of civil and international conflict, as well as the arguments Denizen faces personally and publicly, underpins this literary and dramatic work.

This new drama further extends the range of Dave Duggan’s work which, while rooted in the place where he lives, has already reached audiences and readers across Ireland and in Edinburgh, Liverpool, New York and Afghanistan.

‘Dave Duggan is a respected Northern Ireland writer, participating in all aspects of drama throughout Ireland, as a playwright, film-maker, director and novelist. His contribution to the arts in Ireland, north and south, is well recognised and he is considered to be one of the most dedicated, hard-working and inventive playwrights of his generation in Ireland.’
Gilly Campbell, Drama Officer, Arts Council NI
