Misery Hill: The Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish - Part One

Dates: 20 Sep - 23 Sep

Show Time: 9pm

Tickets: €18 - €20

“Don’t forget to read between the lines, chew what I say and try not to swallow.”

One of Ireland’s most enigmatic performers steps into theatre to bring his stranger than- fiction life story to the playhouse.

Meet Jerry Fish, the descendant of pirates that once swung from the gallows on Misery Hill. Born-hard to a mermaiden mother, swaddled in a baggywrinkle by the Liffey and raised on the banks of the Thames. Chockablock full of vaudevillian fun and games, voyage to the artist’s ancestral self with never-before-told stories, half-truths, half-fictions and brand new songs.
