STAY ALIVE is a Field Day production to mark its 40th anniversary (1980-2020). It is Field Day’s debut film. Commissioned by Stephen Rea, the piece is written by Clare Dwyer Hogg, directed by Juliet Riddell, and produced by Sam O’Mahony through 2nd Part Productions. It features Stephen Rea as well as actors Emmet Kirwan, Lisa Dwyer Hogg and Jeanne Nicole Ní Áinle. STAY ALIVE was conceived as a visual pamphlet – a reference to the pamphlets Field Day historically published in order to disseminate ideas – and is imagined as a direct message to someone who is considering taking their own life.RTÉ – IRELAND’S NATIONAL PUBLIC SERVICE MEDIA YouTube Channel
