Swansong
By Connor McDermottroe

Performed by: Andre DeVanny
Directed by: Greg Carrol
Image by : Stuart Catto

Meet Occi Byrne, the illegitimate child of a single mother in the Catholic west of Ireland. Shunned by church, state and family, Occi must fight his way to adulthood in a dog eat dog world. Violent, tragic and hauntingly tender, Swansong is the story of a lost soul from one of the masters of Irish drama.

“Directed by Greg Carroll, this late-slot showcase doesn’t have a set or lighting rig to call its own, but with all eyes on de Vanny, it feels complete. If Swansong is revived in the future – and it should be – I wouldn’t want to see it presented with much more in the way of technical embellishment than it is here.”
Jason Blake - Eightnightsaweek

“Swansong is a mighty tour de force featuring an indisputable talent and his boundless energy and commitment. What de Vanny brings to the stage is faultlessly executed. Voice, face and body are operated at capacity, with a sense of euphoria that can only come with total abandonment. Nothing is kept in reserve, and the audience can only respond with an earnestness parallel to the show’s thorough and powerful vulnerability.”
Suzy Wrong - Suzy Goes See
