What Good is Looking Well When You’re Rotten on the Inside?  theatre finished

One month before his death, retired civil servant and man of few words Paddy O’Grady had a sudden urge to talk. Using a cassette tape recorder, he recorded hours of absurdist stories and musings on life.
Now, Paddy’s granddaughter examines the fragile personas we present to the world, who we might be behind them and who we could be instead in ashow about emotional inheritance and grief for wasted creativity that serves as both a tribute and a warning.
