Delighted that the show I wrote and directed gets another airing this week on Lyric FM.
BONES OF CONTENTION, the radio docudrama on the life and work of Irish writer Brian O’Nolan (aka Flann O’Brien or Myles Na gCopaleen) as told by his various writing avatars is described by The Irish Times as ‘an enjoyably inventive docudrama’ using ‘sharp humour,’ a ‘vivid reimagining,’ and ‘an absorbing portrait.’
It was a wonderful experience interviewing novelists like Julian Gough and Pat McCabe; comedians, BlindBoy Boatclub, Ardal O’Hanlon, Tommy Tiernan, and David McSavage; actor Eamon Morrissey, literary experts Dr. Keith Hopper and Dr. Carol Taaffe, poet Louis De Paor and dramaturge Jocelyn Clarke.
And perhaps, even more fun was directing fantastic acting talents of Jack Lowe, Kevin Marron, and Rachel Rath. Here is some of the behind-the-scenes footage of the production as recorded by sound engineer, Brian Wallace, in his studio at Burbank, California
