Director Jimmy Fay and writer and filmmaker Derek O’Connor share a passion for Erich Von Stroheim’s classic 1924 silent masterpiece Greed, an epic tale of hubris and folly – the original, eight hour cut is considered one of the great lost works of cinema. Fay and O’Connor are working on a stage adaptation of McTeague, the classic novel by Frank Norris that inspired Von Stroheim’s work, relocating the action from turn-of-the-century San Francisco to Ireland; here they offer a staged reading of the text, and a tantalising glimpse at a work in progress.
