Noel has two sides of an old cassette tape to record his very last words. Eoin Colfer’s acclaimed blackly comedic and very moving play about love, life, death and the Thompson Twins.
Noel has advanced MS and decides to end it all. While waiting for his overdose to take effect he records an increasingly rambling message full of humour and small-town anecdotes for his best friend. Noel has apologies to make and messages to send. He has love in his heart and he wants to declare it even if it’s already too late. Noel spends what is possibly the last hour of his life re-living the highs and lows of the past forty years and, surprisingly perhaps, it’s not all doom and gloom.
My Real Life is a mesmerising 75 minute monologue by award-winning author Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl), performed by Don Wycherley (Sing Street, Bachelors Walk, Abbey Theatre) and directed by Ben Barnes (Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal, Waterford and former Artistic Director of the Abbey Theatre).
