44 Seville Place at the Viking Theatre
Written and performed by Peter Sheridan
Directed by Maggie Byrne.
Peter Sheridan grew up in a family of seven, not far from the River Liffey on Dublin’s north docks. 44 Seville Place is his account of that fabulous and heart-breaking childhood. As the 1960s begin, so does this wonderful, funny, warm and poignant portrait of a Dublin working-class family. The story draws us into their lives and relationships in an unforgettable way. Through the journey of young Peter, it shows us an individual and a society on the cusp of profound change.
‘It celebrates the idea of the family in all its chaotic wonder.’ The Sunday Independent
‘You will rejoice in this wild song of a book.’ Frank McCourt
‘Dublin has rarely come to life as it does in Peter Sheridan’s memoir… his prose is as rich as his characters, ordinary and fabulous, tragic and hilarious.’ Neil Jordan
