Directed by Lou Prendergast
Featuring Tom McGovern
Tommy has good intentions. A self-proclaimed ‘man’s man’ with the gift of the gab and a penchant for Elvis, his plan unravels through a series of dark events, and Tommy cant do right for doing wrong.
Lou Prendergast’s theatre practice grew out of visual art training and now includes playwriting, performance and directing. Her creative practice is realised via a female perspective, a mixed-race sensibility and a social conscience. Productions written, directed and performed by Lou include Whatever Happened to Harry? (Winner: Blackbox Graduate Visual Artist Award, Arches LIVE, 2012); Fifty Shades of Black (Citizens Theatre, 2013); Fifty Shades of Black (Dub Version) (CCA, 2013) and Blood Lines (The Arches, Culture 2014). Tommy’s Song marks the first play written for a male actor.
