Brendan Galileo for Europe: One-person show with Fionn Foley

  • The Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre 9 Market Street Armagh, Northern Ireland, BT61 7BW United Kingdom (map)

Admission: £13 | BOOK HERE

A high-energy, satirical comedy that uses the Eurovision as a zany but poignant allegory for Ireland’s relationship with Europe. This hilarious new play by Fionn Foley is about keeping your integrity at the world’s foremost convention of kitsch.

Brendan Galileo is determined to make his mark on Irish political life by joining the ranks of the European Parliament. But with his voice lost in a sea of tribal bureaucracy, he must take drastic action to improve his public profile. Brendan decides he must represent his country in the most vicious diplomatic catfight in the continent: the Eurovision Song Contest.

Winner of the ‘Best Performer’ and ‘Bewley’s Little Gem’ awards at Dublin Fringe Festival 2018, the show travels to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August.
