The Everyman is delighted to present the premiere of GATMAN!, a new play written and performed by Tadhg Hickey.

GATMAN! is a one-man monologue play that presents two contrasting but interdependent narratives.

We spend a day with Murph as he wanders the streets of Cork desperately attempting to sober up before a supervised visit with his little boy. Murph’s story is interwoven with the adventures of Gatman, a superhero who acquires extraordinary powers when fuelled by Gat (booze). Gatman’s mission: to save his beloved, boozy Corkopia from the sobering shackles of Father Mathew – the temperance priest statue that has come to life.

This new dark comedy explores the metamorphic effect that alcohol can have on the human spirit, delving into the depths of trauma and the desperate search for a life-saving elixir that transforms individuals into fantastical versions of themselves – the false self or alter ego.

Following the critical success of In One Eye, Out the Other (2019), Tadhg Hickey brings his new play, directed by Sophie Motley, to The Everyman stage this spring.
