Having a Bolshevik moody outspoken granny is good fun
ONE OF the most enjoyable shows I have seen this year was Brú Theatre’s Selvage, written and performed by James Riordan and first staged in The Mick Lally Theatre in March. Selvage now returns to the Town Hall Theatre for one night only, on Tuesday November 26.
Selvage (a word meaning the self-securing first and last line of knitting ) is a show about unravelling tightly-wound modern anxieties and a boy’s triumph over his ‘gnaw’. James plays Jo Fanny, a vulnerable youth whose life is destabilised when his activist grandmother is imprisoned and he must face the world on his own.
