One Night Stands: Michael Harding
One Night Stands is a short series of one-off performances at the Joinery by individual theatre-makers. Readings, performances or explorations of works in progress; the series will encourage each performer to experiment and develop their work in an intimate setting, followed by a discussion with the audience.______________________________________
Michael Harding, the Irish Times Columnist, playwright and novelist, has written a memoir that has gone to the top of the bestsellers list. Staring at Lakes is a beautifully written book in which he talks with openness and honesty about his journey through life, leaving the priesthood, falling in love, being overwhelmed by depression and ultimately how he found a way out of the dark by accepting the fragility of love and the importance of now.
Following an unprecedented reaction to his memoir, and to his regular slots on the John Murray show on RTE Radio 1, Michael is embarking on a nationwide tour of arts centres and venues. He tells his remarkable story with great wit and has already enthralled and entertained audiences with his unique take on life in Ireland.______________________________________
