Aidan has plied his trade in the underworld of North Dublin. In his youth he showed promise as an amateur boxer but fell foul of a life of vice. He arrives at an immovable crossroads and is forced to reflect upon his life and ask the fundamental question: how should a man live?
Another Billy Conn is a new one man show examining how we fall to disaster through the combination of personal failings and circumstances with which we cannot deal. And how we struggle to make sense of it all through resolution.
This is a play that will resonate with anyone who has seen beyond the glossy postcard image of Dublin. For anyone struggling to make sense of their life; for anyone interested in boxing; for anyone with a passion for Dublin (good and bad); for anyone who knows anyone stuck in the horrors of addiction; for anyone who loves a beautiful malady. It is part urban drama and part horror story about a man who could have been another Billy Conn. (William David Conn was a popular Irish American Light Heavyweight Champion in the 1930’s)
