Irish actors Pat Kinevane (left) and Joan O'Hara, in a scene from the RTE Television drama 'Two Lives: A Mother's Love is a Blessing', during filming in Tibradden House, Rathfarnham, County Dublin in June 1994. O'Hara, whose face is not clearly visible in this shot, is bringing a birthday cake to Kinevane. He is sitting on the side of a bed, wearing pyjamas and holding a teddy bear under one arm. He is grinning broadly at O'Hara.
'Two Lives' consisted of a number of individual dramas featuring two actors or actresses in each one. 'A Mother's Love is a Blessing' was a first play for television, written by novelist Pat McCabe. The piece was a black comedy about the lengths to which a son will go to get rid of his mother. It was broadcast by RTE 1 on 15 September 1994 with Charlie McCarthy directing and David Blake Knox producing. The series producer was Michael Colgan. 'A Mother's Love is a Blessing' won a special recommendation at the Prix Futura in Berlin (1995) and the Short Drama award at the Celtic Film and Television Festival in Fortwilliam, also in 1995.
