‘F.A.T. D.A.D.’, an acronym for the six counties under British rule, portrays the life of teacher, Fiachra Martin. His classroom acts as a symbol of a divided Ireland and the impact this perpetual tension has on lives of his students. Mr. Martin goes on hunger strike with Bobby Sands, and as his beliefs deepen, he finds himself unemployed and homeless.
Inspired by true events, this play tells the story of the profound impact a teacher and nationalist hunger striker had on his pupils in north inner-city Dublin during the 1980s and 1990s. The play depicts the cultural and social problems of drugs and homelessness of that era, issues that still resonate today.
