Today's volunteer for our quickfire questionnaire is one half of the Hubcap Theatre Company. the eternal teaanger of comedy, Sean kelleher.
Q- Tell us about yourself
A- Been going through a mid-life crisis for the last 20 years. Still don’t know what I’m going to be when I grow up
Q- What will you play on stage in Birr
A-In ‘The Parish’ we both play multiple roles. I play the funnier characters in the play. Michael is my sidekick. He’s a passenger really. But don’t tell him I said that.
Q- Who is your biggest influence (in life / on stage)?
A- My best buddy Michael! You can tell him I said that!
Q- Describe yourself as a 10-year-old.
A- I was beautiful then. I was small and fought like a Jack Russell.
Q- What’s your best onstage memory?
A- Winning Best Actor in the All Ireland Drama Festival 2016. Michael never won it. You can tell him that.
Q- What’s your worst on stage memory?
A- A five minute dry during a performance of The Odd Couple. Six of us on stage and we all thought it was someone else's line. Turns out it was mine…
Q- Where are you at your happiest?
A- On stage in full flight!
Q- What’s your favourite colour?
Q- What’s the last book you enjoyed?
A- The Mayor of Casterbridge. I had to read it for my Inter Cert. Not a great book reader. No wonder after having to read that one.
Q- What’s your favourite song of all time?
A- Thunderstruck. At full volume in the car. Used to be better when I had hair
