The Mommo Plays : Brigit, Bailegangaire, A Thief of a Christmas
by Murphy, Tom

I'd like it to be perfect . . . Beautiful . . . The statue . . . Unbeatable? . . . I'd like it to be what I feel . . . And I don't know what that is.

Set in the 1950s, Brigit, a prequel to Murphy's critically-acclaimed Bailegangaire (1985), tells the story of Mommo and Séamus, grandparents living on the breadline, who are raising three grandchildren: Mary, Dolly and Tom, when Séamus is offered a job to carve a statue of St Brigit.

Brigit premiered in September 2014, in a production by Druid Theatre Company, Galway, Ireland.
