Since its award nominated debut run with Absolut Fringe, Three Men Talking About Things They Kinda Know About has sold out shows in Kinsale, Project Arts Centre Dublin, and Bristol. Now, our brilliantly received short play with the long name is back this October for a final whistle-stop tour that will hit London, Kildare, Waterford, Dublin and Wicklow. Don’t miss your last chance to see the show, which will include hometown shows for both Stephen (Tallaght) and Kalle (Waterford). Please spread the word to any fans of theatre & poetry in those places and please pick up tickets as soon as possible to show your support. We would love to close out the tour with warm, friendly, full houses!

The show has come to the end of a remarkable run at ABSOLUT Fringe. When we embarked upon this project we had aspirations and hopes for it, but we couldn’t have anticipated the amazing end result. We are immensely proud of what we have achieved.
Not only did we receive a nomination for the “Little Gem” Fringe Festival award (a staggering achievement in its own right), but we also got a stunning four star review in The Irish Times from Sara Keating. We consider both of these to be a massive honour and are thrilled to be recognised so positively for our work. Not bad for a bunch of ABSOLUT Fringe first timers!
As well as that, every single night of the show was sold out. That blows us away. In a time when people have less money to spend, this show of support meant a huge amount to us all. It was extremely inspiring to see faces old and new every single night at the show. Thanks to you all for being there and sharing in the experience.
In response to the work itself, we received effusive praise, poetic responses and standing ovations. It was profoundly humbling to see that our very personal stories resonated so deeply with so many of you. It took a lot to get up there each night but the response gave us so much back.
The three men up on stage was only part of the story though. We are hugely indebted to our brilliant director, Sarah Brennan, who took a leap of faith in working with us three poets and gave shape to such a powerful piece of drama on the stage. It was a real honour to work with her.
Thanks are also due to our wonderful partners and families who formed part of the stories onstage, as well as supporting us through the many months of writing and rehearsing the show. Without them we would have been adrift. Our love to all of them.
So, what now? Well, we will take some well earned rest and spend some quality time with our loved ones. We will then assess what our options are and perhaps take the show back out there to the public again. Stay tuned to this blog and our respective places and spaces on the web for more information. Three men will talk again…

Our thanks to Sara Keating for her very positive four star review of our show in today’s Irish Times. We are extremely proud of the piece and it is encouraging to receive such a positive response.
” ****…each of the men brings their own energy, tone and distinct poetic style to the composite structure…”
