Vagabonds - My Phil Lynott Odyssey
Leviathans Goat & Tara Arts
Fri 4 – Sat 5 November
performed by Robert Mountford
directed by Chris Larner
written by Chris Larner & Robert Mountford
Rob Mountford, a man saddled with a mess of cultural identity, is seeking answers. In his quest to prove an unlikely Irish heritage, mythological psychopath Cu Chullain challenges him to tell the tale of a great Irish hero. Stumbling upon the statue of quintessential Irish Rock Legend - Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott - the stage seems set...but as Rob dips in, his own story takes over: a tale of heroes, muddled memories, and untimely death: a story as tragic and funny as life itself.
What makes a hero? How true are myths? A comic-tragic, philosophical, rock’n’roll one-man show.
Chris Larner (Fringe First winner) directs and co-writes in this hilarious show.
