Damien Leith: the PArting Glass- An Irish Journey

BY The Street Theatre | 17-Mar-2015
THE STREET PRESENTS. DAMIEN LEITH. THE PARTING GLASS - AN IRISH JOURNEY. After its roaring success at The Adelaide Cabaret Festival and at previews in Sydney and Melbourne, Damien Leith takes his show 'The Parting Glass - An Irish Journey' on the road in May 2015.
 "...a polished and personable performance from an artist who has ridden his luck with great skill and now is deservedly rolling in four-leaf clover." Matt Byrne The show which incorporates both a play and a musical concert of classic Irish songs is set in an Irish pub and see's Damien take on the character roles of both a father and a son who are catching up on lost time over a few drinks. "The rousing renditions of traditional Irish songs were a highlight..." Anna Vlach, The Adelaide Advertsier Filled with great conversation and humour, heartfelt emotion and a repertoire of rousing and touching Irish Songs (Danny Boy, Raglan Road, Toss the Feathers, Rocky Road to Dublin...), The Parting Glass is a show like none other. It showcases Damien as not only an exceptional musician and singer, but as a talented and engaging actor. "An entertaining Irish-flavoured experience courtesy of a talented performer" Jamie Wright, Theatre Guide Australia Audiences will be taken on a journey through words and songs, invited into the snug of an Irish pub with two endearing characters - they may laugh, they may cry but above all else, they'll certainly be entertained. Street 1 - reserved | Duration - 140 minutes with interval.
