The MAC Theatre, Belfast – There’s A Bishop In My Bedroom – Outburst QAF

Tinderbox Theatre Company and Outburst Queer Arts Festival present – There’s a Bishop in my Bedroom. A hugely entertaining one-man show that riffs on the familiar theme of religiously mixed marriage to address a very contemporary topic: same-sex love and marriage.

Directed by Patrick J O’ Reilly, this is wonderfully funny, raw, and deeply-affecting storytelling theatre that will leave you in no doubt about the power of real love and commitment – part of the Outburst Queer Arts Festival 2017.

Emerging from Outburst’s new writers’ workshops with Tinderbox Theatre Company, it combines Irish oral-tradition storytelling with folk theatre to take on sex-education, sourcing illegal condoms in 90s Dublin, religiously mixed and same-sex relationships and facing the realities of end of life care.

Written and performed by Richard O’Leary, and based entirely on Richard’s own extraordinary story, we follow his journey from a would-be priest in Cork, through to coming-out as a gay man and falling in love with a Protestant minister, who would become his life-long partner.
