The Librarian’s Cellar: At the Theatre: 44 – The Dublin Memoir of Peter Sheridan

By the skin of my chin, I managed to catch the closing night of Peter Sheridan’s one man show, 44 Seville Place at the Dolmen Theatre. Based on his memoir of the same name, for anyone of the vintage to remember growing up in the 1950’s and 60’s inner city Dublin, it ‘s a nostalgic trip down memory lane. For anyone too young to have experienced it first hand, it is a treat for the ear and for the imagination as Peter brings to life an era gone by forever.

You will laugh and unless you are made of cold stone, you will cry – and you will definitely be entertained by a master storyteller.

Currently touring, the next production happens as part of the ‘Five Lamps Festival’ with a show at the Irish Writers Centre, 19 Parnell Square, Dublin: Wednesday, March 11th at 7:30pm
