Country and Irish Peter McGowen takes the lead in Patrick McCabe’s Beckett-esque one-man show. Meet Donie Burris, who overcomes his troubles (which include his girlfriend, his overbearing mum and the MidFord mafia) by imagining himself as “the star of his own gangster movie.” Presented by the Fight2flight Theatre Company and Smock Alley Theatre, Country and Irish is essentially the story of a man at the end of his tether who sets out to tell a story like non you’ve ever heard before. Directed by Conor Hanratty, McCabe’s triumphant theatrical display has been picking up rave reviews.
