Gerry Murphy gets the Crazy Dog treatment at Cork Jazz Festival '08

Gerry Murphy : Poet Laureate of the People's Republic of Cork

Get ready for fun as Crazy Dog Audio Theatre and Tinpot Productions bring selections of Dedalus Press poet Gerry Murphy's poetry vividly to life through performance, music and sound in a riotious radio adaptation by the Award winning dramatist Roger Gregg.

Murphy's renowned satiric poetry will be performed by several leading Irish voice talents to the accompanient of specially composed live music and sound effects. All the infamous personnas of Murphy's scathing verse, from his savagely comical portraits of demented despots to his highly personal love poems will be presented each evening of the Cork Jazz Festival at 6 pm. in the Everyman Palace Bar.

These very special performances will be recorded for subsequent radio and internet broadcast. Seating is extremely limited, so book now by contacting the Everyman box office at 021 450 1673.

Dedalus Press is delighted to support and work with Crazy Dog Audio Theatre and Tinpot Productions in what we hope will be the first of a series of such productions aimed at bringing poetry to the widest possible audience, both on the page and off it.
