My Real Life @ The Viking Theatre

19 Aug 2019 - 31 Aug 2019 Viking Theatre @ Conolly's the Sheds, 198 Clontarf Road, Clontarf, Dublin. 3

'My Real Life' written by Eoin Colfer, starring Don Wycherley and Directed by Ben Barnes will run at the Viking Theatre from Monday 19th August to Friday, Saturday 31st. 

Back after a sell-out run last August, we are delighted to welcome Don Wycherly back to The Viking.

Noel has two sides of an old cassette tape to record his very last words. Eoin Colfer’s acclaimed blackly comedic and very moving play about love, life, death and the Thompson Twins.

Noel has advanced MS and decides to end it all. While waiting for his overdose to take effect he records an increasingly rambling message full of humour and small-town anecdotes for his best friend. Noel has apologies to make and messages to send. He has love in his heart and he wants to declare it even if it’s already too late.  Noel spends what is possibly the last hour of his life re-living the highs and lows of the past forty years and, surprisingly perhaps, it’s not all doom and gloom.

My Real Life is a mesmerising 75 minute monologue by award-winning author Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl), performed by Don Wycherley (Sing Street, Bachelors Walk, Abbey Theatre) and directed by Ben Barnes (Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal, Waterford and former Artistic Director of the Abbey Theatre).

Tickets are €15 and can be booked by phoning 087-1129970. Shows begin at 8 pm with doors opening at 7.45 pm.
