Three Men Talking - Colm, Kalle, Stephen - (c) Jessica Ryan - www.comfyphotography.com

“Three of Ireland’s leading performance poets – Colm Keegan, Kalle Ryan and Stephen James Smith – take the audience on a cathartic, emotional journey into the heart of who they are. Digging into subjects that men may not traditionally explore like love, relationships, loss, family and self doubt, they explore what it really means to be a man. 

Three Men Talking has had hugely successful sold out runs at ABSOLUT Fringe 2011, the Turnaround Rep Season in Project Arts Centre 2012, as well as the 2012 Kinsale Arts Festival. The show has been nominated for the ‘Bewleys Cafe Theatre Little Gem’ award in 2011 and is currently in development to be made into a feature film. 

Colm, Kalle and Stephen James are all award winning writers and slam-poetry champions in their own right, having performed at several prestigious literary festivals & venues across Ireland and around the world. This is their first play.”
