Friday 27 July & Saturday 28 July
‘Everyone has a soundtrack to their lives and Owen O’Neilldecided to have a think about what songs were important to him and why? He could have written twenty songs to die for, but he had to choose carefully. He takes the audience on a journey, from when he was ten until about 45, using ten songs which have been integral to the most tragic joyful and comic moments of that period. When he caused chaos at his school Feis Ceoil, (Irish Music Festival,) by singing a very inappropriate song in front of the Bishop of Derry. How he lost my virginity aged 15 to the local bank managers wife, who on the same night was taken hostage by IRA gunmen. When he broke into Hammersmith Police station through a skylight wearing a red velvet suit. How he went on an acid trip and had a fight with some garden gnomes. These are only some of Owen’s true life stories in this seventy minute show..
This is a really special chance to see Owen’s new show, before it goes to Edinburgh!! Do Not Miss
