“Crowman” by Katie Holly
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 Kenny carries the audience on a roller-coaster ride from this 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 belong and not belongin to a smally 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’.
