Glimpse; oceans of champagne, coffins, snow, beautiful gardens, a black monk travelling through time, trees, vodka, women, women, women and a life in which eternity is the only thing worth talking about.
Featuring the best of Irish theatre talent, this dynamic new play sees a collision of visuals, words and music in a distinct and poetic re-imagining of the life of a brilliant man.
