DES KEOGH as GEORGE BERNARD SHAW in My Fair Ladies
Celebrating his 80th birthday this year, one of Ireland’s most renowned actors and performers, Des Keogh, gets to fulfil a life-long ambition to play legendary Irish man of letters George Bernard Shaw.
Following the phenomenal world-wide success of his show The Love-Hungry Farmer by John B. Keane, which he also adapted, Des has devised and will perform in a hugely entertaining new play about the many ladies in the extraordinary life of one of the greatest playwrights of all time.
Author of Pygmalion, which became the smash-hit film My Fair Lady, Shaw shares anecdotes about the loves of his life, who included leading actresses of his day like Mrs Pat Campbell and Ellen Terry, and elaborates on his forthright views on marriage and celibacy.
Des Keogh has just completed two sell-out runs of the acclaimed revival of Moll by John B. Keane at the Gaiety Theatre Dublin. In 2014 he appeared in the world-premiere production of Dreamland by Jim Nolan, for which he was recently nominated for an Irish Times Theatre Award.
