HE HAS played roles in National Treasure, Game Of Thrones, Blackadder, and Notting Hill, and now British actor Tim McInnerny is coming to Galway to take part in a show about the complex relationship of Brahms with Clara and Robert Schumann.
Beloved Clara in the Aula Maxima, NUI Galway, on Wednesday February 1 at 8pm, will feature McInnerney, along with fellow actor Derbhle Crotty and pianist Lucy Parham - who devised the show.
