You are invited to experience Gabriel Byrne's critically-acclaimed "Walking with Ghosts", available to stream worldwide on-demand this month.
Irish actor Gabriel Byrne's "Walking with Ghosts" brings to life his best-selling literary memoir on the stage in this deeply intimate performance, and now there's a chance for everyone to experience this astounding piece of theater.
Following a sensational sold-out run at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin, the show will be available to watch on-demand worldwide from 26 February - 4 March.
Directed by Emmy award-winning director Lonny Price, the critics said Gabriel Byrne is "one of Ireland's finest performers at his very best" (★ ★ ★ ★ The Sunday Times) and described his performance as "captivating" (★ ★ ★ ★ Financial Times).
Walking with Ghosts
Standing alone on stage, Gabriel Byrne brings the audience on a journey through a reflection of his life. As a young boy growing up on the outskirts of Dublin, Byrne sought refuge in a world of imagination among the fields and hills near his home, at the edge of a rapidly encroaching city.
Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and a commentary on stardom in Hollywood and on Broadway, he returns to his hometown to reflect on a life's journey.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Byrne shares memories of his father's job in the Guinness brewery, the shocking death of a school friend, trips to Clerys in Dublin with his mother, his brief stint in the priesthood before moving on to his years as an actor in Hollywood.
