Description

At age seven, Phil was sent to Dublin by his single mother, Philomena, to be raised by her parents so she could earn enough money to survive. Looking at race, parenthood and identity this one-man play dives into late 50s and 60s Dublin through the eyes of a young Phil Lynott, exploring how his unique circumstances set him up to found Thin Lizzy and become one of the stand out rock stars of the 70s.

The first time I spot Miles Mlambo, sitting in a café, is an oddly disturbing moment. I am looking at what appears to be the late Phil Lynott’s identical twin. ‘That guy must be in a Thin Lizzy tribute act,’ I decide.
