Diary of a Hunger Strike


  • Drámadóir

    Peter Sheridan 

  • Achoimre

    Diary of a Hunger Strike investigates the complex and controversial issues surrounding the H-block hunger strike.

    Day 52, the warder once again leaves the tray of food near the semi-conscious person. Even were he willing, he would be unable to digest the meal as his bodily functions have regressed too far. But the warder will persist with the gesture of offering food. Both men are trapped, one by the ravages of enforced hunger, the other by the enforcement of meaningless rituals. There is pressure on his relatives and on the Church to save his life. The word is that the Government will not back down. That's official.
