From the Shoulders Down
PJ Mulpeter, now sixty-five years of age, begins his final working day as a builder’s labourer, having ‘soldiered’ for fifty years with the same ‘outfit’ Murray & Sons Construction.
In a reflective mood, he casts a backward glance at the highlights of his ignominious ‘career’ on the ‘pick and shovel’, combining humour with pathos, love, loss, rejection and regret, but never without hope.
After sell-out performances around Ireland, Richard Lynch brings this unique piece to Ballina Arts Centre for one night only. From the Shoulders Down depicts the life and times of PJ Mulpeter, but it takes in a wedge of social history.
Adm: €12 / €10 (concessions).
