Conversations with Roddy Doyle

Supplied by Ticketmaster UK. Customers with disabilities please call 0207 960 4200 to book.

One of Ireland’s best-loved writers joins us for an intimate and entertaining evening of sprawling conversation, with various special guest interviewers.

Roddy Doyle’s writing is recognisable for his rich humour, use of dialogue and contemporary references, presenting difficult issues in a concise and accessible form.

His work inimitably portrays the experiences of everyday Irish life – and he has even managed to persuade quite a few people that ‘Mustang Sally’ is a traditional Irish song.

With a chance to hear the man himself read from such books as The Woman Who Walked into Doors, Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha and A Star Called Henry, this is an evening not to be missed… unless there’s something better on the telly.

Roddy Doyle is the author of eleven novels, two collections of stories, a memoir of his parents, eight children’s books, a number of plays and screenplays, an opera translation, and co-wrote The Second Half with Roy Keane. His many awards include the Booker Prize for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha (1993), the Irish PEN Award (2009), and the BAFTA Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Commitments (1991). Most recently, Roddy wrote the screenplay for the film Rosie, which heartbreakingly depicts Ireland’s homelessness crisis in some of his most moving and insightful work to date. His new novel Love – in which two men spend an evening talking about women – will be published in 2020.
