- Shadow in a Landscape - Roderic O'Connor 1860-1940 Alternative
Drama based on the life of Irish painter Roderic O'Conor (1860-1940) who was a friend of many of the Impressionistic painters, such as Gaugan and the circle of artists who gathered at Pont-Aven and Le Pouldu. Among Irish painters he remained a neglected `genius' until rediscovered by Belfast artist Roy Johnston, a lecturer of art at the University of Ulster. The story covers his early fears, his love affairs and his struggles with sketches and painting. Locations: Clonalis House, CO. Roscommon; Ampleforth College, Yorkshire.
