They’re back!

Crazy Dog Audio Theatre’s sellout adaptation of poet Gerry Murphy’s work last summer was my gig of the year.  Poet Laureate Of The People was a brilliant, darkly comic contemporary cabaret that breathed new life into the work of one of Ireland’s most notable poets.

A new version, The People’s Republic of Gerry Murphy, is playing the Everyman Palace Theatre for five nights next week (Tuesday June 23 to Saturday June 27 – naturally you won’t be able to go on the Thursday as that’s the Wine O’Clock fundraiser).

A class crew of actors / comedians / musicians animates Murphy’s sweaty sensuality, highly-charged political scepticism and black, black humour. Live. In 3-D. As well as all this, Crazy Dog has just released an audio CD featuring the entire show plus seven bonus tracks.

Check out more info, an audio documentary and excellent video clips at the Crazy Dog site.
