Festival season has begun and we are proud to announce that The Brownbread Players will be performing a selection of their weirdest, wildest and funniest sketches at the Flat Lake Festival in Monaghan on the June bank holiday weekend. It is a delightful little literary, artistic festival with all kinds of oddities abounding. In fact, attending the festival feels a lot like being in a really good episode of Father Ted. And if last year’s festival is anything to go by, we expect a charming and inspiring mix of ideas and lunacy.
The Brownbread Players will be performing in The Gonzo Theatre tent curated by the mercurial Phil Doherty, which will also feature fantastic performers like The Rubberbandits, The Gombeens, Jinx Lennon, Ghost Train Willy and many others. Other stages will be hosting top writers like Irish legend John Banville and American satirist supreme Joe Queenan, as well as mellifluous music by Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies and The Blood Red Mountain Band. Some of the very best spoken word and poetry performers in the country will also be performing, including The Poetry Chicks, Dave Lordan and Stephen James Smith. In other words, a truly stellar set of performers alongside a whole host of other cool events and attractions. [Check out the loopy official Flat Lake Festival website here]
We are really looking forward to it and we really hope you can make it along. It is one of the most mellow, warm and good natured festivals we have ever been to and they really deserve your support.
