Every so often a show comes along that is truly unique, this Friday one of those shows, makes its way to Longford as internationally renowned Oscar nominated actor Stephen Rea takes to the stage at Backstage to narrate Flann O’Brien’s blackly comic masterpiece The Third Policeman. As one of only four venues in the country to secure this show it is a real coup for Backstage and audiences throughout the region. Heralded as “an exceptional event” by BBC Radio Ulster this unique show is accompanied by an original score performed live on stage by four leading musicians. Rea’s narration of this comic satire is underpinned by a live musical score performed by composer Colin Reid on piano, Neil Martin & Becky Joslin on cello & Niamh Crowley on violin.
