Written by Katie Holly, the play received standing ovations during a run at the Cork Midsummer Festival at The Granary.

The main character of Crowman is Dan Lonergan.  The play is an account of the hilarious characters that inhabit his life on a daily basis and a love story that never was.

Poignant and comic, Kenny carries the audience on a roller-coaster ride from his childhood to middle-age, from the hurling pitch to the pub and from one uproariously funny character to the other.

It is about lost love and the sense of belonging and not belonging in a small community. Most of all it is about the humanity and decency of the local characters found in every rural village and town in Ireland.

As Dan himself surmises ‘Some people never had the dance that I had and some people never hear the music’.

Katie Holly's script conjures up a life of quiet desperation. Kenny conveys a gamut of emotions and gives a masterclass in characterisation and physical acting.
