Poignant ‘My Left Nut’ promises to crack you up

Going Out

COMING-OF-AGE TALE Michael Patrick stars in ‘My Left Nut’.

The hilarious, poignant and highly acclaimed play ‘My Left Nut’ will be staged at The Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar this Thursday, May 24 at 8pm.
The play tells the true story of a Belfast boy growing up with no father to guide him through, and a giant ball to weigh him down. Four hundred millilitres. That’s how much liquid was drained from Michael’s left testicle when he was a teenager. That’s more than a can of Coke. He should have told someone sooner, but who could he turn to? His dad died ten years ago and besides, school is full of rumours about what the giant bulge in his trousers actually is. Who wants to stop that?
The play is performed by Michael Patrick, co-written by Michael Patrick and Oisín Kearney, presented by Pan Narrans Theatre & Prime Cut Productions.
Giving the play four stars, a Sunday Times reviewer said they were ‘laughing one minute, crying the next’, and that the play was ‘a terrific performance of a touching story’.
