The Presentation Centre Enniscorthy
Jon Kenny, one half of D’unbelievables, stars in the new dark comedy Crowman, coming to The Presentation Centre on May 25th. The play received standing ovations every night during its run in Cork Midsummer festival at the Granary, and has received positive reviews from RTÉ and The Irish Examiner.
In it Jon plays numerous characters but the primary character is Dan, a man in his 50s who is living alone. He is a loner and feels himself an outsider looking in on the community but he discovers during the play that he is not as much an outsider as he thinks. When he hears about the passing of a dear friend, he is forced to look back on his own troubled youth and face up to his demons. The play is at times poignant and tragic but also has a warmth and humour as Jon slips seamlessly in and out of the many uproariously funny characters. The people he depicts are surreal and hilarious but tinged with tragedy and Jon plays each with his amazing ability of character acting and unparalleled humour.
