Off to Dublin in August to begin rehearsals for THE NIGHT ALIVE by Conor McPherson. We play for two weeks at The Gaiety Theatre in the Dublin Theatre Festival and then on to Belfast for four weeks at The Lyric Theatre. It is a Lyric Theatre production with Conor directing. It must be over forty years since I last played the Gaiety with Borstal Boy. Am very happy and excited to be returning to my native city in such a marvellous play and such a great character to portray.
Me, as Uncle Maurice…
Adrian Dunbar and me, in a tense scene. “Death is real…”
Back on ‘Corrie’ for a couple of episodes. Kym looks beautiful.
I am going back to Coronation Street. This will be my fourth visit to the famous street…
HERE IS THE COMPANY PHOTO.
This is my daughter and me at MOMA in NEW YORK. Luckily ALL THAT FALL playing at the E59ST theatre alowed me to be with her on her birthday.
ALL THAT FALL was a sell out every performance.
Great news that we are doing it in New York in Nov. Can’t wait to work with The Great Gambon again. Not to speak of the wonderful Eileen.
I am doing my one-man show
“…the he and the she of it.” A Portrait of James Joyce
It will be nice to revisit the lovely little theatre where we did ALL THAT FALL last year.
I shall be performing my one-man show at The Tara Theatre –
Tara Theatre , 356 Garratt Lane, Earlsfield, SW18 4ES
on the 3rd. & 4th. May.
Up here in Glasgow rehearsing and recording Mrs. Brown’s Boys. with the brilliant Brendan O’Carroll. I play a ‘swinger’ and I have the funniest line in the show, but I cannot tell it to you.
Backstage at the Arts during ALL THAT FALL.
After a ‘sold out’ run at the Jermyn Street Theatre s we are transferring to the Art Theatre for a limited three weeks run from 6th. Nov. to 24th. Nov.
