Is it a fox? Is it a middle-aged man in lycra? No, it’s Super-Bogger

Coming to Droichead Arts Cenre for two nights only at 8pm tomorrow Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th November, Livin’ Dred Theatre present the World Premiere of Super-Bogger by award-winning writer Clare Monnelly and featuring a whirlwind one-man performance by her husband Aaron Monaghan. 

Barry West has the perfect life. Wonderful wife. Happy kids. Beautiful home, in the small country town where nothing much ever happens. He just can’t figure out why he is so utterly miserable.

But a chance encounter with a radioactive fox leaves him with strange new super-powers… and sets him on track to disturb the peace and reignite some old small-town rivalries.

Since graduating from the Samuel Beckett Centre at Trinity College, Aaron Monaghan has steadily made a name for himself as an actor and director, particularly through his continued work with Ireland’s prestigious Abbey Theatre and Druid Theatre Company.

He has also appeared on screen—most recently in Martin McDonagh’s Oscar nominated film ‘The Banshee’s of Inisherin’, and the RTÉ series ‘Hidden Assets’ and ‘The Gone’, which also features his wife Clare.

Play write and actor Clare Monnelly rose to fame in 2012 playing the role of Fidelma in hit Irish sitcom ‘Moone Boy’ created, co-written by and co-starring Chris O'Dowd.

She is also known for her TV role in RTÉ’s ‘Nowhere Fast’ and recently made her first feature film lead role in director Aislinn Clarke’s horror film ‘Fréwaka’.

Her 2017 play ‘Charlie’s A Clepto’ was nominated for multiple awards including Best New Play and Best Actress at the Irish Time’s Theatre Awards 2018 and Stewart Parker Trust Award 2018. This year she has premiered two new plays- ‘The Hare’ with Once Off Productions and ‘Super-Bogger’ with Livin’ Dred.

It seems there’s just no stopping this dynamic duo.
