The Wheelchair Monologues Part 1 COMING SOON

Aisling Ghéar presents – ‘The Wheelchair Monologues – Part 1’ written by & starring Gearóid Ó Cairealláin

A story of resurrection, redemption and revival

A real pleasure to see a disabled person portray life after a stroke with humour, punchiness and cheekiness, that’s just what we need A gutsy one-man show In

‘The Wheelchair Monologues – Part 1’ Gearóid Ó Cairealláin takes a look back over the ups and downs of his life since suffering a haemorrhagic stroke at the age of forty-eight. Now wheelchair bound, Gearóid’s life, once extremely active – having ‘turbo-charged the Irish language revival in Belfast with a heady explosion of exuberance and endless possibilities’, he not only helped to found the Irish language daily newspaper Lá, alongside Belfast’s first Irish medium secondary school, while still finding time to co-found the Cultúrlann, Aisling Ghéar Theatre Co and Raidió Fáilte - life has slowed down considerably. However his indomitable spirit and zest for living remains positively undimmed. This is theatre that will inspire you, move you and have you in peals of laughter! COMING SOON!!

The Wheelchair Monologues – Cuid 1’. Gearóid Ó Cairealláin a scríobh agus atá sa phríomhpháirt In

‘The Wheelchair Monologues – Cuid 1, amharcann Gearóid Ó Cairealláin siar ar chora a shaoil ó bhuail stróc fuilreatha é ag aois 48. Agus é ag brath anois ar chathaoir rothaí, tá saol Ghearóid, a bhíodh thar a bheith gníomhach fuinneamhach (dúradh faoi ‘he turbo-charged the Irish language revival in Belfast with a heady explosion of exuberance and endless possibilities’: ní hamháin go raibh sé orthu siúd a bhunaigh an nuachtán laethúil Gaeilge Lá, mar aon leis an chéad mheánscoil Ghaeilge sa chathair, bhí sé ina chomhbhunaitheoir ar Chultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich, ar Chompántas Amharclainne Aisling Ghéar agus ar Raidió Fáilte fosta) athraithe go mór. Mar sin féin, níl aon athrú ar a spiorad dochloíte ná ar a fhlosc chun beatha. Dráma é seo a spreagfaidh thú, a rachaidh i bhfeidhm go mór ort agus a chuirfidh sna trithí gáire thú. AG TEACHT GO LUATH!
