The Poor Mouth by Myles na gCopaleen

The Poor Mouth by Myles na gCopaleen.

The show was restaged to great success in 2009 and will be touring throughout 2010- 2011.

If you think things might be bad during this recession, spare a thought for the poor gaels what lived during a permanent recession in a place called Corkadoragha somewhere along the western seaboard long long ago.

Any attempt to describe this two act piece of theatre as anything other than a mad comedy would be totally inaccurate. This two-man show is a rumbustious comedy which hurls out satirical one-liners at a frantic pace.

This is the award winning comedy play adapted from the book of the same name written by Flann O'Brien (Myles na gCopaleen). The play was adapted for stage by Paul Lee and first presented in the pub An Beal Bocht, Charlemont Street for the Dublin Theatre Festival in 1989.

From there it went on to tour Ireland and England and won the Guardian Critics Choice Award at the Edinburgh Festival 1991.

The original production was directed by Ronan Smith and featured Paul Lee as the Ould Grey Fella and PJ Brady as Bonaparte with set design by Blaithin Sheerin.

"Go and see it again and again"...Tom Mathews.

"If you want a powerfully peaceful statement about Irish individuality and a whopping good time, go and see it".............The Guardian.

"The funniest show I have ever seen".. Pat Short.

"Catch it, as its like will not be seen again" ..Sunday Indo.
