SOME YEARS ago, Martin Sharry moved from Ballymun to Inis Óirr on the Aran Islands to live with his uncle and grandfather also named Martin Sharry.
From that experience comes Martin’s acclaimed one-man I Am Martin Sharry, which explores identity, disconnection, loss of language and tradition, and migration through personal recollection, photos, and objects found in the family home.
The Examiner said: “I Am Martin Sharry, bravely inhabits the spaces between many worlds including those of theatre, poetry, prose and performance art...in its stark, brave and disturbing honesty, its effect lingers long after you’ve left the theatre.”
I Am Martin Sharry is in the Town Hall Theatre studio this evening, tomorrow, and Saturday at 8.30pm. Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 and www.tht.ie
