Dan measures out his life by the amount of funerals he has to attend every week!
‘Set in a sparsely decorated kitchen, this intimate one-man show starring Jon Kenny (D’Unbelievables) feels like a window into the soul of a lonely bachelor, Dan. A crow-hating man who noisily tries to shoo the blighted birds away, Dan measures out his life by the amount of funerals he has to attend every week. They are social occasions with the added bonus of refreshments…Kenny is brilliant in the role, conveying the gamut of emotions. Katie Holly’s script is strong, conjuring up a life of quiet desperation. – Colette Sheridan, Irish Examiner
The play forms part of the West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival which brings brilliant plays and performances to the West Cork Islands each summer.
‘‘The audience at the Watergate Theatre Kilkenny rose to the occasion and roared with laughter at the antics of the characters that Kenny ‘materialised’ as his physical presence changed with his voice. Jon Kenny gives a masterclass in characterisation and physical acting in Crowman by Katie Holly’ – Liam Murphy, ENCORE Munster Express
