Little John Nee:
Small Halls and Potholes
Schedule: Sunday 21st July @ 9:30pm
Small Halls and Potholes is an evening of eccentric songs and strange stories, a show that celebrates all that is weird and wonderful about the summer in this part of the world. Little John Nee is widely regarded as one of Ireland’s leading solo theatre performers, his songs have been praised by John Prine and his theatre shows have received critical acclaim internationally.
Little John’s shows combine lyrical comic storytelling with original music and songs played on a variety of intriguing instruments creating magical soundscapes. He received an Irish Times Theatre Award for “Best Sound Designer for “Sparkplug” and the subsequent RTE Radio Drama adaption won a prize at the prestigious Prix Italia 2013. He was elected to Aosdana in 2016. A book of his haiku “The Apocalypse Came On A Friday” was published the same year. “Small Halls and Potholes” has travelled to Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Czech Republic and Vienna as part of a “Five Cities Tour”.
“We rode a wave of emotion with him, the peaks and the troughs. And afterwards, we felt good, better than we had a couple of hours earlier. Everyone was smiling. Reflective smiles that come with having been privy to something special.” Mary Murphy The Budapest Times “The thing that makes Nee’s work so poignant, funny, tragic and real is that it is instantly recognisable; be it his characters, their circumstances or the situations they find themselves in.” The Donegal News
