"The cast was led by Eoin Corcoran who at the ancient age of twenty-one has done it all! From musical direction to performance. Joe literally is hardly ever off the stage so he used a clever device of changing from dark suit to white tracksuit to indicate the two facets of the one person’s life. The most important thing was we liked Joe in both roles. We could see how he went in the wrong direction and we could see his love of life but also his hurt and pain. A heart-warming performance"
