Peter has performed it in places from Downpatrick to Donneraile,and The Flatlake Festival to The Body Mind Festival. The response has been enthusiastic from local and international visitor alike. As a performer originally from Co. Monaghan he has a natural feel for the language, and sensibility of the text,.”the ability he has to embody the poet’s presence and to speak his words musically” (Brian Lynch Poet/Critic.).It has already been performed as a work-in-progress in The Writers Centre in Dublin and now it will be staged in the capital for a full week appropriately coming up to Halloween.This is a theatrical experience that should be recorded as well as being remembered.(Brian Lynch)
