‘I Could Have Been A Dancer’ hurls you into the vortex of tripping balls, talking frogs and fake machoism as Shane battles his isolation, addiction and sweating beer at the deli counter. Drowning in his everyday grind of work- drink- work, his only lifeline comes in the form of drug-fuelled hang outs with long term mate, Ger. We nosedive into Shane’s self-destruction, facing the rough truths of being human with an honesty that will melt the ice cream right off your cone.
I Could Have Been A Dancer merges nuanced short stories by Hennessy Literary Award Winner Séan Tanner, with atmospheric music from Kobina to create a whirlwind of craic and emotion.

Adapted for stage by the performer, and writer David Greene and Directed by Michelle Lucy.
