HE IS best known as Flann O’Brien, he was sometimes known as Myles naGopaleen, while to his mother and close friends he was Brian O’Nolan.
Whichever name he went by, he remains Ireland’s greatest short story writer and one of our most daring and imaginative novelists. Now his life and work is to be explored in the show Flann’s Yer Only Man in the Town Hall Theatre on Thursday November 13 at 8pm.
Staged by Bare Bodkin Theatre Company, and written and performed by Val O’Donnell, the show re-enacts extracts from O’Brien’s novels and his ‘Cruiskeen Lawn’ column in The Irish Times. These are linked with key biographical events in the writer’s life.
Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 or www.tht.ie
