Celebrating his 80th year in 2015, one of Ireland’s most renowned actors and performers, Des Keogh, gets to fulfil a life-long ambition to play legendary Irish man of letters George Bernard Shaw.
Following the phenomenal success of his show The Love-Hungry Farmer by John B. Keane, and hot on the heels of the acclaimed revival of Moll at the Gaiety Theatre in which he has been appearing, Des will perform in a hugely entertaining new play, which he has also devised, about the many ladies in the extraordinary life of one of the greatest playwrights of all time.
George Bernard Shaw was the author of Pygmalion, which became the universally acclaimed film My Fair Lady. Other titles include Arms and the Man, St Joan, Heartbreak House, Major Barbara and countless others. He was also a hugely controversial essayist and commentator. Shaw not only shares anecdotes the loves of his life, but also his forthright views on sex, marriage and celibacy.
Join Des Keogh for a special evening of wit passion and humour in a very special year.
