This lovely black and white photograph comes to us from the vault of photographer Terry O’Brien, who kindly shared it on Twitter.
Thanks to the accomplished detective skills of Byrneholic Violetta, we know a bit more, because she discovered the Dublin Shakespeare Society’s website. Thanks, Violetta! heart
The called-out text below:
The 1974 production of Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead featured Gabriel Byrne and Myles Dungan as the eponymous leads. Gabriel continued to star for the Society in a number of productions before setting out on the distinguished professional career that he continues to enjoy, at an international level.
On the website of Myles Dungan, historian and broadcaster, you will find information about his books, historical tidbits, and other cool stuff. He’s had quite a career himself in the years since trodding the boards with Gabriel!
So, what were YOU doing when you were 24 years old? You can be sure there is a photo somewhere to remind you, even if you are not a famous film actor!
