Actor Des Keogh fulfills lifelong dream with new Shaw play

One of Ireland’s most renowned actors and performers, Des Keogh, is to perform his sparkling new one-man show My Fair Ladies at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Wednesday next (June 24 ) at 8pm.

Celebrating his 80th year, Des Keogh, is fulfilling a lifelong ambition with his new show by playing the legendary Irish man of letters George Bernard Shaw.

My Fair Ladies follows on from the phenomenal success of Keogh's show The Love-Hungry Farmer by John B. Keane.

The actor has devised this new play about the many ladies in the extraordinary life of one of the greatest playwrights of all time.

Onstage, Shaw shares anecdotes on the loves of his life, as well as his forthright views on sex, marriage and celibacy.

The play takes its name from the universally acclaimed film My Fair Lady, which was the screen adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion.

Described by The Irish Times as "a consummate actor wedded to a skilled raconteur”, booking is advised for My Fair Ladies next Wednesday at 8pm.
