MAN OF VALOUR | Project Arts Centre | Dublin

Man of Valour at Project Arts CentreMAN OF VALOUR

28 MAY - 8 JUN 2013
Space Upstairs

The Corn Exchange 

Tickets €16 - €22


Farrell Blinks is an office drone. His imagined heroic adventures offer violent release from the pressures and boredom of his ordinary life - until one day his past comes knocking, and the border between fantasy and reality begins to blur.

Man of Valour is a breathtaking virtuosic performance by Paul Reid supported by stunning collaborative design in the unique transformational style of The Corn Exchange.

Sell-out hit of Edinburgh Fringe and Dublin's ABSOLUT Fringe, Man of Valour raised the audience to its feet with every performance.

Audio described and captioned performance on 06 June 2013. This performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with performer Paul Reid, director Annie Ryan and director of Arts & Disability Ireland, Pádraig Naughton. 

"This is soaring theatre, at times coming close to being mind-bending." Sunday Independent

"One of the best things to be performed on stage. Anywhere. Ever." The Sun

"As ever with Corn Exchange, it's the way they tell it that lifts things into the truly extraordinary ... a deep-set pyschological noir of increasingly impressive style as well as substance." The Herald Scotland
