'The Twenty Club' - A WW2 Nazi spy Dublin drama that Rex is directing running 19th Sep to 8th Oct.
Writer: Stewart Roche
Director: Rex Ryan
Cast: Lesley Conroy, Evanne Kilgallon & Eva Jane Gaffney
'“The Twenty Club” is a fast paced, female-led genre piece which will delight fans of history and spy stories in equal measure.
As the war in Europe rages with a ferocity unmatched in history, the young Irish Free State watches with growing concern. Its strategic importance to both Britain and the Nazis means its fragile neutrality is constantly under siege.
Captain Farrell, the head of Irish Army Intelligence, confronts the increased spy activity in Ireland with an unorthodox approach, the most daring of which is a small group of female agents under his direct control. After they complete basic training, Joan, Norah and Ellen are assigned their first mission- infiltrate the German legation in Dublin and acquire information about Nazi spies at large in Ireland.
We then jump forward to 1947. On the eve of her departure to Berlin, Joan bumps into Ellen at her going away party. As they reminisce about old times, Joan soon discovers that Ellen has a score to settle.
