‘From the Shoulders Down’ Written and performed by Richard Lynch
Well, known Blessington writer/actor begins a revival tour of his critically acclaimed show ‘From the Shoulders Down’.
Cleverly scripted and performed by Richard the show has previously been staged all over Ireland, parts of England and as far away as Canada, at the London Fringe Festival Ontario and Northern Quebec, winning rave reviews at many venues.
“Lynch not only wins his audience, he also owns them”, “Drama with
laughter aplenty, pathos, substance and heart” – Leinster Leader.
“Must be seen by a wider audience”, “One of the most recognizable characters you could meet” – Tuam Herald.
P.J. Mulpeter, now sixty-five years of age, hails from somewhere in the Midlands.
He begins his final working day as a builder’s labourer, having ‘soldiered’ for fifty years under the same construction firm – ‘Murray & Sons Construction – working under three different generations of the same family.
In a reflective mood, he casts a backward glance at the highs and lows of his ‘career’ on the pick and shovel.
We meet him in the school classroom, his first flush of youth, digging foundations, mixing concrete, at the Marquee Dances, in the pub and the characters from building sites who shaped the pattern of his early life. More notably ‘The Hat Reilly’, a plasterer supreme, and the upstart who wouldn’t be fit to wash the trowel after him, his boss ‘Oul Murray’, his close associate ‘Larry the Lick’ himself, and the girl of his dreams, who stole his heart while they danced to Eileen Reid & the Cadets.
For ninety minutes entertainment, you will meet a character who makes an immediate impact with an audience.
To say more would reveal too much and spoil the mystique.
Don’t miss it.
