Crowman is the acclaimed new play by Katie Holly, featuring Jon Kenny of D’Unbelievables fame. Jon is Dan Lonergan, the Crowman of the title. The play is Dan’s account of the hilarious characters that inhabit his life on a daily basis and of a true love story that never was. By turns poignant and comic, Dan transports his audience on a roller-coaster ride from his childhood to middle-age, from the hurling pitch to the pub – with Jon inhabiting one uproariously funny character to the next, as only he can.
Crowman received nightly standing ovations when it premiered at Cork’s Misdsummer Festival last year. It comes to Donegal fresh from a triumphant three night run at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre.
Jon Kenny is one of Ireland’s finest and best loved performers. Actor and comedian in equal measure, he was part of the legendry comedy duo D’Ubelievables with his friend Pat Shortt throughout the 1990s. More recently, he has enjoyed a hugely successful partnership with Mary McEvoy (Glenroe), touring the country with new adaptations of John B. Keane classics such as Letters of A Successful TD and The Matchmaker.
“Kenny is brilliant in the role.” – Irish Examiner.
