Break a Leg
‘We’re going to make a play out of our own lives and we’re putting it on in three weeks. Now let’s get started…’
Peter Sheridan tells the story of his life from his early teens through to adulthood and his decision to move to the USA. Along the way Peter grows up, explores his sexuality, finds love and has children, makes theatre, gains and loses friends and he speaks openly, honestly and movingly about it all.
BREAK A LEG is Peter Sheridan’s new one-man show based on his recently published memoir by the same name.
Exploring the story of his life in the theatre, it also touches on so much more. An insightful work which illuminates the wider culture and politics of Ireland in 1960s and 1970s. BREAK A LEG is a wonderful evocation of Ireland in that era through the prism of one man’s unique experience. The theatre, seen through Sheridan’s eyes, can do much more than entertain: it can itself be a vehicle of social change.
If you enjoyed 47 Roses you will love Break A Leg.
