You Need To Check Out Ross O’Carroll-Kelly's Latest One-Man Show

We grew up obsessed with Ross O'Carroll-Kelly.

No exaggeration. 

We've read all of his books and columns, and seen all of his plays multiple times. 

The latest play in question is called  Letters from the Ledge and it could very well be the best yet. 

Written by Paul Howard and directed by Jimmy Fay, the one-man show stars just Rory Nolan as Ross. 

The year is 2029 and Ireland is in the midst of an economic boom. 

Ross is about to turn 50 – and life could not be better for him. His wife, Sorcha, is the Taoiseach

His triplet boys are the backbone of the Castlerock College Junior Cup team. And he still does alright with the ladies.

All is as it should be. 

As the Managing Director of Hook, Lyon and Sinker estate agents, he spends most of the day with his feet up. But when a client rings and asks someone to put a valuation on 22 Glenageary Glen, a semi-detached house in Sallynoggin, Ross decides to do the job himself. The reason is that he recognises the address as his childhood home.

As he stands in the doorway of the run-down, council-built house, the sediment of old memories is stirred up. And he takes us on a journey of remembrance, through happy times and sad times, laughter and tears.

Sounds facking brilliant if you ask us. 

Tickets from €22 are on sale now from here.
