Tadhg Hickey: In One Eye, Out The Other
Acclaimed Irish comedian Tadhg Hickey - "outstanding physical and comedic performer" The Scotsman - brings you his weird and wonderful part-theatre, part-stand-up comedy show, In One Eye, Out The Other.  

The show tells the story of Feargal, a downtrodden but cheery man who fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming an alcoholic. Using the Catholic calendar as a roadmap, Feargal leads us on a surreal and hilarious journey with many poignant twists in the hope of arriving at a sort of light at the end of the tunnel for the bright man'. 

The show is loosely based on Tadhg's own journey with alcoholism. During promotion of the show, Tadhg went public with his own story and has since had many mental health and alcohol action groups, as well as sufferers reach out to him.  

"I started writing the show when I was still drinking, maybe trying to find the funny side of slowly drinking myself to death. Sober now years, not in my wildest dreams did I imagine the drunken scribblings would one day make it to an international audience and possibly help someone else who might be struggling with alcoholism". - Tadhg Hickey 

In One Eye, Out The Other is characteristically brave and ambitious, as Tadhg searches for cathartic humour in a surreal retelling of his own battle with alcoholism. 

"Greatart. A vital catharsis. I laughed until I cried. Go see it." Sunday Independent 

"Both funny and poignant; a brave, risky performance. This is exciting work" The Independent
