Country and Irish - Patrick McCabe’s one-man masterpiece about a man at the end of his tether who imagines himself as the hero of his own gangster movie. Starring Peter Gowen and directed by Conor Hanratty.

Peter Gowen takes the lead in Patrick McCabe’s Beckett-esque one man show. Meet Doie Burris who overcomes his troubles (which include his girlfriend, his overbearing mum and the Midford Mafia) by imagining himself as “the star of his own gangster movie.”

Presented by Fight2Flight Theatre Company, Country and Irish is essentially the story of a man at the end of his tether who sets out to tell a story like none you’ve ever heard before.

Directed by Conor Hanratty, Mc Cabes’ triumphant theatrical display has been picking up rave reviews.
