09 Silver Stars L

Featuring a community chorus of older and not-so-old gay men, Sliver Stars is a moving and eloquent song-cycle which tells the truly remarkable real-life stories of ordinary men in search of happiness and fulfilment, in a country that was challenged by their very existence. Based on celebrated singer/songwriter Seán Millar’s interviews with gay men from Dublin to New York, these songs capture tales of love, loss, family, spirituality, defiance and joy.

Staged by the undisputed rising-stars of Irish theatre, Brokentalkers – nominated for a 2008 Irish Times Theatre Award for their innovative work - this extraordinary show was first performed for four sold-out nights only as part of the 2008 Bealtaine Festival.

Brokentalkers are Associate Artists of Project Arts Centre.

It will blow you away because Silver Stars is quietly devastating in its depiction of how much Ireland has changed in the past 20 years and genuinely uplifting in its celebration of the many people who affected
that change.

"Irish theatre may still be somewhat in the thrall of its literary past, but I suspect that Brokentalkers are gradually gathering support for the here and now." The Irish Times
