“Kathleen and Me” (Online only)
Fri 29th January @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Shoreham Wordfest with Local & Live
Kathleen and Me
by Janet Behan
Kathleen Behan was a powerful influence on her children, not least “The Notorious Brothers Behan” as the banner headline described Brian, Dominic and Brendan in the News Of The World circa 1959. In this public showcase of a brand-new work Janet takes a very personal look at the life, times and legacy of her extraordinary grandmother.
In collaboration with director Jessica Higgs, this first public showing of “Kathleen and Me” uses songs and stories, weaving together extracts from “Mother of All the Behans” (Kathleen’s memoir as told to Janet’s father Brian), to create a vivid evocation of this remarkable woman. This is the first stage in developing a new theatrical production and we invite the audience to engage with the creative process by joining a live Q&A session on Zoom after the performance.
The link for the online broadcast and the zoom Q&A will be provided on the day of the performance.
