Submarine Man By Aidan Harney

November 7, 2018

Submarine Man is a hilarious and yet at times incredibly moving account of one of Ireland’s greatest unsung heroes.

Captivated by the allure of the sea, man has always been intrigued by underwater exploration and the mysteries of the deep. The year is 1873. Dundalk-based, noviciate Christian Brother, John Philip Holland is obsessed with his design for a bizarre, submergible craft.  He soon finds himself caught up in the frantic, international race to tame ‘the Mistress of the Sea’. Infused with the inventiveness of the eccentric genius, this true-story drama tells the little-known tale of ‘the father of the modern submarine’ and one of Ireland’s greatest, unsung naval heroes.

‘Genuinely gripping there is no doubting that Harney is a real talent

“Aidan Harney’s charmingly playful bio-drama of the father of the modern submarine… imaginative stagecraft, entertainingly nimble physicality.”
