Description

A one-man performance spoken directly to the audience. A story told like the teller is thinking it through as he speaks. There is humour in the use of language. If one wants to compare it, one could consider it to be similar in ways to a piece of Beckett. The character speaks as if he's thinking at the time, remembering and describing the things in his room, the room itself and his surprise and reaction to his own thoughts. It is as if he is speaking to the audience, but the audience could be himself.

Neil O’Shea’s one man show was great and so unique!! His storytelling abilities are impressive, capturing the audience with his emotion and expressions, keeping us engaged and immersed in the story. If you are looking for something quite experimental and different from anything else, this show is a great choice. Neil is talented and a lovely person!
