ABOUT THE SHOW
Dublin 1963 and Brendan Behan’s song The Laughing Boy has become the inspirational anthem of the political Left in Greece. Alexandra, a student and political activist, has travelled here to seek out the writer of the song and invite him to Greece to boost the struggle for Socialism.
Her search comes to an end in a Dublin pub but what she finds there is totally unexpected.
This is not the Brendan Behan she had imagined. But perhaps she can offer him a lifeline, a chance to escape the caricature he has become.
