The author and Irish Times columnist is coming to Birr

Following his hugely popular nationwide tour of venues in Ireland in the spring of 2015 on the back of his book Hanging with the Elephant, author, playwright and Irish Times columnist Michael Harding, is on his travels again in his unique one man show. He will bring that show to Birr Theatre on Friday, March 3.

Harding will spend some time reading from his latest offering, 'Talking to Strangers,' and will also talk to the audience with his unique wit and honesty about the trials and tribulations of life, love and growing old. Harding is a popular figure in the Irish literary scene and he is sure to once again captivate audiences with a night of storytelling, musings and readings from his very best work.

His live shows are at times hilarious, yet poignant, homespun yet profound, down-to-earth yet prone to amazing flights of fancy." 

The show starts at 8pm and tickets are priced at €18/16, and are available from the website.
