2002 – Passion Machine – Dir: Anne Gately
Documentary chronicling the life of Crosshaven costume designer Marjorie Fitzmaurice who began working in Irish theatre in the 1920s, amassing a wonderful collection of period clothing. Although almost completely blind, she helped Anne Gately of the Passion Machine Theatre Company to find the right outfits for a production in Dublin, and this programme is shown as a tribute to her achievements before she was taken into care

I thought I had lost this show until it recently turned up on a VHS tape in my parents house, so the quality isn’t great but not bad considering either.
