Coming through with the realness

Singer-songwriter Steven Sharpe

Among the highlights of this year’s Galway Theatre Festival is Steven Sharpe’s new one-man musical, The Realness of Miss Representation, which he will present, for two performances only, at the Town Hall Theatre studio.

In the show, Sharpe takes an autobiographical look at being a 30-something gay man in a post ‘Yes’ vote, marriage-equality Ireland. With more freedoms, options, obstacles, and expectations for the LGBTQ+ community, how will Steven deal with the current social climate?

This will be Steven's first theatre show since Who's The Man? in 2013. Since then, he has toured Ireland and Europe, along with many musical collaborations (including Led Zeppelin tribute act No Stairway ) and, in 2017, released Shut Up Dylan, his debut album with his regular posse, The Broke Straight Boys.
