Central Standard Theatre plans Drexel Hall event


APR 5-8


At turns poignant and hilarious O’Neill’s 
poetry is the most unexpected of 
performances, but certainly one of the 
highlights of the festival
He is a prolific writer and tireless performer 
of his own work-dramatically accomplished, 
emotionally charged and very funny. He’s 
got a darker side too, but what underscores 
all his work is a deeply poetic spirit which 
shines through. – THE SPECTATOR
O’Neill is a master storyteller, to call what he 
does stand-up does not do him justice. 
This is genuine comedy from the gut. 
O’Neill is a rollercoaster ride, strap in. 
You can almost smell the burning flesh. 

Join Owen O’Neill for an evening of poetry, theatrical monologue and stand-up storytelling. Owen manages to blend all three to perfection in his show Red Noise and as part of the show he will read from his latest collection of poetry Licking the Matchbox.

True stories from his life include:
Being Struck by Lightning at nine years old and being told he had the Cure for Cancer.
Being interrogated by an IRA Man with a Stammer (The longest two hours of his life).
How his Feature Film Debut with Liam Neeson went horribly wrong.
Brought up in a family of Sixteen Siblings and having to queue for breakfast.
You know… a typical Irish life.
