Waterford City & County Council's Arts resource site
Garter Lane Arts Centre Sat 4th Feb 8pm
Following the premiere at Little Duke Theatre Drogheda and during Dublin theatre festival 2016 which culminated in a nationwide tour Stagemad Theatre Company returns to Garter Lane with the highly acclaimed Foxy Divil.
Frankie,a homeless man, recounts the stories of his street life.
Starting from what led him to take to the streets, we discover the tales and encounter the phantoms and angels of his waking days. He travels along the edge of sanity held together by the cocktail of gallows humour, and the strange bed-fellows and the scourge of alcohol. This is not a fight or a battle, it is an acceptance of the destination arrived at and the coping mechanisms that kick in.
Ireland is in the center of homeless crisis. ‘Foxy Divil’ offers a funny, hilarious, insight into an ordinary man’s life as one of 6,358 homeless in Ireland.
