Conversations with Roddy Doyle
interviewed by Phil Williams
For one night only, come and celebrate one of Ireland’s best-loved storytellers this March.
With eleven novels, two collections of stories, a memoir of his parents, eight children’s books and a number of plays and screenplays, Conversations with Roddy Doyle is a unique and exciting opportunity to hear this legendary author open up on his prolific career, reading from fan favourites including The Commitments and his Booker Prize winning novel Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha. Famous for his unique use of dialogue and rich humour, for many Doyle’s work perfectly captures the experiences of everyday Irish life – and he’s even managed to persuade quite a few people that Mustang Sally is a traditional Irish song!
Don’t miss this witty and intimate evening of sprawling conversation with the man himself.
8pm – 8.45pm: First Half
9.05pm – 9.40pm: Second Half (including 20 min Q & A)
