Celebrating his 80th year in 2015, one of Ireland’s most renowned actors and performers, Des Keogh, gets to fulfil a lifelong ambition to play legendary Irish man of letters George Bernard Shaw when he takes to the stage at the Roscommon Arts Centre on Saturday May 23.
Following the phenomenal success of his show The Love-Hungry Farmer by John B. Keane, Des has devised and will perform in a hugely entertaining new play about the many ladies in the extraordinary life of one of the greatest playwrights of all time.
George Bernard Shaw was the author of Pygmalion, which became the universally acclaimed film My Fair Lady. Other titles include Arms and the Man, St Joan, Heartbreak House, Major Barbara, and countless others.
He was also a hugely controversial essayist and commentator. Shaw not only shares anecdotes on the loves of his life, but also his forthright views on sex, marriage, and celibacy.
A special evening of wit, passion, and humour is promised as Des marks turning 80 with this very special performance. Not to be missed!
