language unbecoming a lady theatre garter laneOriginally presented as part of Limerick Pride in 2009, the play is set in the dressing room of an ageing drag queen who reveals his life and loves, victories and defeats. Exploring the themes of identity, love found and love lost, and using the music of Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Billie Holiday and more, Language Unbecoming a Lady tells the story of one gay man’s life. From his childhood through adolescence and onto adulthood, the one constant in his life is the music of the divas who provide comfort, strength and inspiration. Critics said: “Unadorned, vulnerable and comically self-critical, Breen is a shining and believable presence” – Irish Times “fabulously written, wonderfully acted, tells an extremely important story, and is an undoubted success” – Irish Theatre Magazine   “Breen’s writing is sharp, colourful, aphoristic” “it’s emotional honesty is compelling” – Irish Examiner  “A rural tour de force that sweeps back the fraudulence of city life today” – Dublin Gay Theatre Festival
