WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Poetic and prescient, Raymond Scannell's virtuosic solo performance tells the story of Julian Neary, whose childhood gift for mimicry--from Columbo and Jimmy Stewart to Billie Holiday and Morrissey--becomes his ticket out of 1980s Ireland, until the chaos he sees in the outside world reflects his own chaos within. Winner of Best Male Performer at the Dublin Fringe Festival, Scannell takes the audience on a moving and mesmerizing journey, exploring imitation, authenticity, and what happens to a nation that leaves its heritage behind.
