I Didn’t Come Up The Liffey In A Bubble
In August 2003, Gavin Friday was invited to talk at the Laurent Perrier/Dubliner magazine Culture Club in Newman House. He gave a colourful insight into his influences in front of 100 invited guests. So successful was this talk that he was asked to repeat his performance in the Spiegeltent at the Dublin Fringe Festival the next month.
Billed as “A One Man Show – For One Night Only”, Gavin built on the foundations of his Laurent Perrier talk to create a visual and vocal journey and an intimate recollection of his growing up in Dublin and the people, musicians and artists who influenced him including his parents, his ex-wife, Protestants, Oscar Wilde, Bowie, Jacques Brel, Kurt Weill, punk and Picasso.
