THE monthly On the Nail literary gathering takes place this evening, Thursday January 9, at its new home of the People’s Museum of Limerick in Pery Square. Expect a fun night of theatrics with an accomplished actor and writer to anchor the event. Myles Breen is fresh from his brilliant turn in Specsavers Limerick Panto ‘Aladdin’ as Widow Twankey.
“This month we are delighted to welcome actor, writer, director Myles Breen and the poetry of Oscar Wilde, plus the open-mic session,” reports organiser Dominic Taylor. “Myles will reprise excerpts from his recent one man show on the life of Oscar Wilde, ‘A Wilde Fan’. He is bringing us the poetry of the great man himself. Join us for this unique presentation.
“Everyone is invited to take part in the open-mic after the main event with poets, storytellers, musicians and writers. Even if you don’t write you are welcome to bring something along to read. The night begins at 8pm and admission is free. So join us and make this event something special.”
On the Nail is a vehicle organised by Limerick Writers’ Centre. LWC is unfunded currently and depends on sales of books and donations for revenue. Find out more at this link
