A reading of a new play by Jim and Peter Sheridan will be staged to honour the memory and legacy of Brendan Behan.
‘Being Brendan’ is an unflinching portrait of the man that draws on his life and his work. It is by turns funny, irreverent and heartbreaking. It also features many of the songs that Brendan made famous in his plays and his impromptu performances.
Musical Direction is by Sean Gilligan. Donal Fallon (Historian and Creator of 3 Castles Burning Podcast) will chat to Peter Sheridan and then open out the evening for the audience Q&A to respond to the play.
Presented By: The Civic as part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations
