About the play
Una's family is in Dublin to see the Pope. But there are unanswered questions. Would the Pope condemn communion in the hand? Would he put a halt to the gallop of well-heeled women? But more importantly, why was Una's brother being force-fed on muesli and lentils? Why did Father Simeon want to join a circus in Rio de Janeiro? Una Pooka is the fantasy of a single woman in a nation on its knees before the Roman Pontiff.
