Jon Kenny in Crowman on Saturday 22nd February Ticéidí €22 ar dhíol anois. Crowman is Dan Lonergan’s account of the hilarious characters that inhabit his life on a daily basis and a love story that never was.
By turns poignant and comic Jon Kenny carries the audience on a rollercoaster ride from his childhood to middle age, from the hurling pitch to the pub and from one uproariously funny character to the other.
It is about lost love and the sense of belonging and not belonging to a small community. Most of all it is about the humanity and decency of the local characters found in every rural village and town in Ireland. As Dan himself surmises ‘Some people never had the dance that I had and some people never hear the music.’
Crowman is the perfect acting vehicle for Jon Kenny (D’Unbelievables) who is brilliant not only in the role of Dan the many uproariously funny characters he sitches seamslessly between in this triumph of quiet desperation infused with warmth and dark humour.
