10 years ago I wrote and performed a spoken word play called Three Men Talking About Things They Kinda Know About in the Dublin Fringe Festival with Colm Keegan and Stephen James Smith. The mighty Sarah Brennan directed the show, and it went on to be nominated for the Little Gem Fringe Festival award. And it then took us on a journey to Project Arts Centre, and to multiple wonderful venues in Ireland, and across the waves for sold-out engagements in London, Bristol and Paris. It was a truly magical time for me as a writer and creative, and I have written about it at length on here before if you’d like to learn more about the journey of the show.
And now a decade later, we have decided to celebrate the anniversary in some way. The show had ripples across the spoken word scene in Ireland, as well as having a significant impact on our lives. So, we are marking the occasion with an evening of conversation in Axis Ballymun on Dec 8th with Niamh Ní Chonchubhair. Additionally, we want to mark the anniversary in some tangible way by launching a beautiful new audio recording of the play (with a glorious soundscape composed by Gareth Quinn Redmond) , and a limited edition 10th anniversary publication of the script – featuring essays from journalist Gemma Tipton and our director Sarah Brennan, as well as brand new forewords by all Three Men, and a host of archival photos from several different performances. Admission is free but you’ll have to book tickets here. We would love to see some of your friendly faces (wearing masks) at the event – it promises to be really special.
