'Wrecking the Rising' Writer James Phelan Awarded IFTA for Best Script Drama
2017-04-11 9:00:00 : Katie McNeice
The Tile Films comedy series is produced by Stephen Rooke and directed by Ruan Magan with a cast led by Peter Coonan (Gridlock), Owen McDonnell (My Mother and Other Strangers) and Seán T. Ó Meallaigh (An Klondike).

It follows three re-enactors who travel back in time to 1916, just as the Easter Rising is about to break out. Their first accidental contribution is to deprive the rebellion of one of its most famous leaders. Thereafter the trio must decide whether to keep history on course or use their in-depth knowledge to plot some new and unexpected outcomes.

‘Wrecking the Rising’ was a flagship project for TG4 in marking the anniversary of the Easter Rising, with one of its many feats the creation of a GPO façade in a hanger of Galway airport.  

James Phelan, Writer:
“I'm truly delighted to be honoured by IFTA for this script but my work would not have been even noticed if not for the truly amazing cast and crew of 'Wrecking the Rising' bringing the words to life with their collective talent, effort, wit and warmth. I'm tremendously grateful to Tile Films, TG4 and the BAI.”

The 2017 IFTA Film & Drama Awards air tonight at 22:15 on RTÉ One.
