The Macnas was on Me! - by Páraic Breathnach

Nun's Island Theatre
Thursday, 13 December 2018 20:00 - 22:00
Place: Nun's Island Theatre

Breathnach charts his adventures from 1960s Connemara to 1980s Galway city in his new comedy show 

Páraic Breathnach's brand new show comes to Nuns Island Theatre for one night only! After a fantastic run in the Vodafone Comedy Festival it promises to be a wonderful evening of truths, half truths & total fiction about a life in theatre.

Páraic explores the idea that 'Macnas' is a clinical condition which forces sufferers to do daft things at the drop of a hat and which existed even before the foundation of Macnas itself. Indeed Páraic blames the syndrome for leading him astray and into the world of theatre.

The stories start in 1960s Connemara and culminates in the vibrant cultural scene of Galway in the 1980s. Along the way there are side swipes at the powers that be, the established church, and forces opposed to any sort of Macnas appearing on the streets at that time. Páraic will also talk about his work with Druid, Macnas, and the Galway Arts Festival. Páraic will tour the show nationwide in the spring.
