Blackwater Babble is the story of a man who has spent years trying to work out what makes a good session.


What made the night and what killed it. But, as he sat in the corner scribbling in his notebook, life and love flowed past him. Now he is sitting in his boat with his younger self, sifting through the notebooks, the songs, the memories and regrets.

Every maudlin ballad that killed the night and every table-thumper that saved it! This show invites its audience to head down the river with our scribbler and his younger self while they pick through the songs, fights, memories and obsessions that shaped his life. It is an exploration of regret and memory, masculinity and purpose, set against the changing face of the Irish pub.
