Ogygia is a tripartite
experimental drama documentary, adapted from the autobiographical writings
of the Irish poet, senator and surgeon Oliver St John Gogarty.
It combines the episodic structure of Homer's Odyssey with the stylistic
pyrotechnics of Joyce's Ulysses to relate a contemporary account of
Gogarty's extraordinary life.
In episode XVII, the actors Marcus
Lamb and Sean Murphy comment on a pilgrimage made to the summit of Croagh
along with 50,000 other pilgrims, on 'Reek Sunday,' 2008.
with title cards posing catechistic questions, upon which the actors
then rhetorically reflect.
