Colm Magner's "brutal, poetic, darkly funny ... and very Irish" one-man
U.S. premiere at the New York International Fringe Festival this month.
Two performances left:
Wednesday, August 25 | 10 - 11:10 pm
Saturday, August 28 | Noon - 1:10 pm
"Magner is a terrific story teller weaving the
intricate strands of a life into a cohesive and entertaining tapestry with all
the vibrancy, insight, humor and vulnerability of the late Spalding Gray."
of Orangutan: A Memoir.
4th St. Theatre
79 East 4th St.
Part mystery story, part personal memoir, and a true story of suicide, The
Scavenger's Daughter unravels in a series of vivid flashbacks as an Irish
Catholic boy journeys to the funeral of his twin brother -- a funny and affecting
testament to lost youth, rock and roll, and the ties that bind. Colm plays a
variety of characters -- including a nun, a priest, and "two Irish guys at the
bar" who comment on the proceedings. The show received its Canadian premiere
at the Confederation Centre for the Arts in Prince Edward Island in 2008.
