A charming meditation on creativity

A special show inspired by family recollections comes to the Dunamaise this August, in 'What Good is Looking Well When You’re Rotten on the Inside?’ by Emma O'Grady.

One month before his death, retired civil servant and man of few words Paddy O’Grady had a sudden urge to talk. Using a cassette tape recorder, he recorded hours of absurdist stories and musings on life.

Now, Paddy’s granddaughter (Emma O’Grady from Mountrath) has created a show that examines the fragile personas we present to the world with this charming meditation on wasted creativity and emotional inheritance.

Supported by the Arts Council, ‘What Good is Looking Well When You’re Rotten on the Inside?’ comes to the Dunamaise on August 18 next.
