MADHOUSE at Theatre Royal Waterford on Wednesday 23rd October at 8:00pm
Based on the extraordinary true-life story of comedian PJ Gallagher, Madhouse is a warm and hilarious portrait of an Irish family in exceptional circumstances and was a smash-hit sell-out critical success when it premiered at Dublin Fringe in September 2018.
Through the laughter and tears Madhouse asks one important question: who’s mad anyway?
In the 1980s, many psychiatric institutions were closing down and there were few places for long term residents to go. So, to supplement the family’s income PJ’s Ma, a nurse, moved six men into the family home to look after. She did everything for them from administering their medication to cutting their hair. One of only four residential homes in Ireland to engage in this experiment, it began when PJ was 10 and ended when he was 19.
Written by UNA MCKEVITT & PJ GALLAGHER.
Starring: KATHERINE LYNCH & SHANE O’REILLY.
Starts @ 8:00pm | Tickets: €22/€20 from Box Office or www.theatreroyal.ie
