Ten Songs to Die For

Everyone's life has a soundtrack, but there's none quite as comedic as Owen O'Neill's

Tues 24 to Thurs 26 July, 8pm


Everyone has a soundtrack to their lives and I decided to have a think about what songs were important to me and why. I could have written twenty songs to die for, but had to choose carefully. I take the audience on a journey from when I was ten until about 45 using ten songs which are integral to the most tragic joyful and comic moments of that period.

When I caused chaos at my school Feis Ceoil (Irish Music Festival) by singing a very inappropriate song in front of the Bishop of Derry.

How I lost my virginity aged 15 to the local bank managers wife, who on the same night was taken hostage by IRA gunmen.

When I broke into Hammersmith Police station through a skylight wearing a red velvet suit.

How I went on an acid trip and had a fight with some garden gnomes.

These are only some of the true life stories in a seventy minute show.

What the critics have said about my previous shows...

ONeill is a genuine storyteller full of heart and soul he is also very funny - The New York Times

You can almost smell the burning flesh - The Scotsman

 Muscular and vivid storytelling. I didn’t see anything better - The Spectator
