Summer of
De Bogman

A chaired Gael!

How are you getting on? I trust this email finds you well. Let me tell you me big news!

Nearly 20 years ago while studying in University College Cork I became friends with a brilliant actor, writer and director by the name of Brian Desmond. I was given a slot in the Dramatic series at the Granary theatre and thought I might do ‘The Islandman’. A translation of ‘An t-Oileanach’ the autobiography of Tomás Ó Criomhthain (1856–1937), published in 1929. I had seen it in Listowel and was mesmerized. Brian thought I was mad as we only had 4 weeks to prep it. He said if I could get a copy of the script he would think about directing it. A week later and still no script, we decided to write our own show.

And, so, on Halloween night in the year 2000 513加速器下载 was born!

As the Be Your Own Banana Theatre Company We brought it everywhere. From the country towns & schools of Ireland to Port towns in England and over to America where it played Minnesota and off Broadway in NYC. Well, it’s back, Ladies and Gentlemen. And this time it’s playing California.

San Diego June 26 & 27

San Francisco June 28

Los Angeles July 9 & 10

Don’t miss your chance to see the show.
*Not suitable for Children*


De Bogman
Is an Irish emigrant story.  Based loosely on the life story of boxing legend Gentleman Jim Corbett (the man who invented the uppercut), the play charts the adventures of an Irish village idiot who goes to America to become heavyweight boxing champion of the world. The eponymous hero of the tale, as a pariah, belongs very much in the traditions of the Irish emigrant tale.  It’s an unlikely and hilarious twist on the best of this tradition and the rags-to-riches mythology of the Hollywood boxing movie.  While the New World the Bogman encounters is hostile, he blunders in clown-like fashion through all obstacles.  You’d struggle to find a more loveable and innocent boxing hero, who’ll have you roaring from your ringside seat in this “cult classic” (Irish Examiner) of Irish theatre.
If you wish to get in touch with us about the show or the Be You Own Banana Theatre Company email us at byobanana@hotmail.com or press reply to this email.
Hope to see you there! And if you know of anyone in California please send them along if they need a good laugh. Hup!

Le grá
Máirtín & Brian

Here it is folks, Milo joined Gabriel Donohue and his dad Máirtín de Cógáin on the big stage of the Norwegian Pearl to sing his heart out with ‘I Tell Me Ma‘ on Joanie Madden’s Folk ‘n’ Irish Cruise Alaskan Adventure. He learnt the song over the summer when he tagged along with me (his dad, like) to the San Diego Children’s Choir Summer Camp, which was a brilliant week. This is one of the songs I thought the group.

The Swannanoa Gathering 

This summer saw me for the first time teaching and lecturing at 蜂鸟ⅤPN软件 during their Celtic Week. Every morning at 9am a class of about 40 would come to learn ‘What is in a tale: The Mask & Playfulness of the Storyteller’ then at 10.45 another 40 or so would listen and discuss ‘The Myths & Legends of Ireland’. It was one of the best teaching weeks I have had. The students were brilliant but I ended up learning quite a lot myself in the research for it and in the classes themselves.

For the Myths & Legends Class I split it up into the four major cycles:

  1. The Mythical Cycle
  2. The Ulster Cycle
  3. The Fenian Cycle
  4. The Historical Cycle

And for the 5th day I focused on the Corkman Thomas Crofton Croker and his Fairy Legends and Traditions of the South of Ireland book from 1826.
During the Storytelling class we dissected the elements of an interaction between the storyteller and the listener as well as what makes and good story and why we need stories to validate who we are. This was a class that became much more than I had anticipated.
We are in discussion to see if this kind of class could be repeated next year. Le cúnamh Dé they will have me back. Would you sign up for those classes?

Joanie Madden’s Folk ‘n’ Irish Cruise off to Bermuda
We had a ball on the majestic cruise up to Alaska with Joanie Madden and her cast of characters. It was wonderful to collaborate with great musicians and pop up sessions about the boat made it ever exciting.
Next May we go to Bermuda. Joanie told me I was going and I can tell you I went round the garden here doing continuous cartwheels. If you have ever been to the Fleadh Cheoil or a big Irish Festival, it is something like those only it’s on a boat and someone makes your bed, dinner & tea!

The Boy Patrick
A lovely project spearheaded by Patsy O’Brien I gave my drumming to, The Boy Patrick, is now out and in the world for all to have. There is currently a SALE ON – check it out and get your copy now online here

“Patsy O’Brien is a very accomplished musician and a masterful storyteller. In The Boy Patrick he merges both skills to bring alive the story of St. Patrick. Not only does he bring this iconic and often misunderstood iconic figure to life but you emerge from the experience with an understanding and appreciation of Irish instruments and how they function in an ensemble. Think an Irish Prokofiev’s Peter and The Wolf. I look forward to the day when Patsy brings this project to the stage – where it belongs. In the meantime, listen read, and revel in The Boy Patrick as it pushes the envelope on the Irish tradition.”
