Tom Madden

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

A fascinating portrayal of the formative years of Micheal MacLiammoir: actor, playwright, artist, linguist, raconteur, and co-founder of Dublin's famed Gate Theatre.

Born in Cockney London, Micheal MacLiamm¢ir moved to Dublin in his teens and set about creating an entirely new persona, becoming one of Ireland's leading stage actors along the way.

He immersed himself in Irish culture, becoming fluent in the Irish language, and was gripped by the social unrest in Dublin as Ireland fought for independence. The story of MacLiamm¢ir's development as an artist is told through hundreds of previously unseen letters and diary entries.
