A CHILD’S VOICE
A mischievous radio broadcaster (the late, great T.P. McKenna) tells ghost stories over the air. He receives a strange call warning him not to finish his latest story about a child who dies during a magic show. Director Kieran Hickey creates an eerie mood with great economy and flair.

FROM TIME TO TIME
Hilton Edwards directed this haunting tale with Gate Theatre chums – a ghost story with an historical twist. While cycling in the Dublin Mountains near Luggala with her boyfriend (Patrick Bedford), a young woman (Maureen Cusack) falls from her bicycle and is knocked out. She time-travels back to that very spot where an informer, Cathleen Byrne, was captured by the IRA years before.
