Pops is pleased to host New Frontier Theatre Company’s North American premiere of the one-man play, “The Chronicles of Oggle”, written and originally performed by Peter Gowen, about growing up in Ireland during the 1960s and 1970s. Bennett Gale, artistic director of NFTC, brings Pakey, an orphan and survivor, to full voice on the stage at POPs Performing Arts Center in Dunsmuir and Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum, opening April 15, 2016. Previously, the play had only been performed in Ireland.
Heart-rending and hilarious, “The Chronicles of Oggle” illuminates acute adversity in institutional Ireland while simultaneously nurturing hope and joy.
“…a comic tale of our times – startling, enjoyable and sad – a sharply faceted performance.” – Irish Times
