The Grand Inquisitor is from the 5th chapter of Dostoyevsky’s great Russian novel The Brothers Karamazov. It tells the story of
Jesus returning to 16th century Spain, why the Grand Inquisitor has him arrested and intends to burn him at the stake the next day. Nov 17/18/20 @ 8pm and sat Nov 25th @ 5pm
Wildgoose Lodge concerns the worst atrocity of 19th century Ireland (1816), more people executed as a result than 1916,
at least half of whom were innocent, yet few know anything about it. Why and what is the true story ? “The Murders at Wildgoose Lodge, Carleton, and Me” by Peter Duffy will investigate these events and more recent and contemporary relevance. Nov 21/22/23/24/25 @ 8pm
