Around the World on 80 Quid – West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival
Around the World on 80 Quid brings divilment, debauchery and near-death experiences to Glengarriff as part of the West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival
The play by a Aindrias de Staic is loosely based on a true story. This multi-award-winning storyteller and musician recounts the journey of an Irish violin player as he wanders across the globe through musical genres and all sorts of drama, until he eventually finds himself and the music of his soul at the end of the road. But behind the laughs and music is the story of one man’s addiction, and how he battled cleverly to overcome it.

WINNER Best Solo Show – New Zealand Fringe 2008
Aindrias de Staic has been described in the media as ‘a captivating yarn-spinner’, but he is also an accomplished musician and actor having won the ‘Best Actor’ award at the Geelong Film Festival (Australia) for “Malarkey” (dir. Joe Loh 2006) and The Galway Music Award 2007. Born in Galway, Ireland, his rich ‘n rare style of fiddle playing is as unique to the west of Ireland as his story-telling, antics, and humour.
