Bare Bodkin Theatre Company presents Flann’s Yer Only Man Saturday 18th October 2014 8pm

An engaging comical look at Ireland's finest satirist since Jonathan Swift!

From the Company that brought The Great Hunger by Patrick Kavanagh to The Playhouse in April, Flann's Yer Only Man brings the life and work of Flann O'Brien, aka Myles na Gopaleen,aka Brian O'Nolan (1911-1966), to the stage.

Val O'Donnell re-enacts a wide range of extracts from the humorist's novels and his celebrated Cruiskeen Lawn column in the Irish Times, linking them with key biographical events in the writer's life.

Flann's Yer Only Man was first performed in the Palace Bar in Dublin in 2011, the centenary of the writer's birth and since then has received critical acclaim at Listowel Writers' Week Literary Festival, the Flann O'Brien Literary Festival in
Strabane and the Swift Satire Festival in Trim.
