Crowman performed by Jon Kenny- This Show has been postponed until a later date.
A dark comedy starring Jon Kenny (D’Unbelievables), written and directed by Katie Holly (Marion, Sharon), about one man’s loneliness –
and his pathological hatred of crows.
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.
Dan, who vacillates between high comedy by mimicking TV celebrity chefs; and pathetic admissions, including attending Mass just to connect with another human by shaking hands, is a master at distraction, But one day, hearing a death announcement on the radio. his world is shattered.
Kenny is brilliant in the role , conveying the gamut of emotions. Katie Holly's script is strong, conjuring up a life of quiet desperation.
