Every now and then, you realise halfway through an interview that, heck, you could just throw random words at this person, and they’d have a whole pocketful of anecdotes and insights to throw back at you.
Such is the case this afternoon with Peter Sheridan…
Bringing not one but two shows to Greystones – this weekend’s sell-out adaptation of Brendan Behan’s The Confirmation Suit and his own one-man show, Made In Dublin, on Friday, January 26th – young Sheridan has spent pretty much his entire life weaving tales, dodging labels and generally causing trouble.
But, you know, in a good way.
Standing up to the bully in life. Playing with the kids on the wrong dark of the street. Putting on shows at the Project with his equally incendiary brother, Jim, that spark the ire and the fury of such institutions as The Arts Council, The League Of Decency and The Sisters Of The Immaculate Misconception.
Through all their work, together and apart, you get the impression that the Sheridans love upsetting the powers that be almost as much as they love celebrating the power of family and togetherness. That contradictorymix of sentimentality and Semtex has resulted in some incredible theatre, some award-winning memoirs, and a handful of Oscar-winning films.
But, hey, enough of our yakking. Let’s concentrate on Peter’s gift of the gab instead, as we talk about family, fame, flouting the rules and farting to your arse’s content.
