'In Search of Mr B' at The Viking Theatre
Starring: Bryan Murray (Fair City,Brookside,Irish RM) & Michael Bates (Fair City,Mattie, Roy)
Produced by: Directions Out Theatre Co
Brian Mc Avera’s new comedy is an unconventional and irreverent look at one of Ireland’s most iconic writers. This new work opens with Beckett waking up in the after-life to find he is challenged by his conscience about his irresponsible behaviour as young man. ’In Search of Mr B’ is a surreal and humorous evening of entertainment that incorporates elements of music hall and physical comedy that is played directly to the audience. It promises to be very funny, thought provoking and challenging on the early life of one of the 20th Centuries greatest artists.
