(For the duration of the Bewley’s Café refurbishment on Grafton Street) BEWLEY’S CAFÉ THEATRE @ POWERSCOURT is proud to present... DOWN AND OUT IN PARIS AND LONDON By George Orwell Adapted and performed by Phelim Drew Directed by Michael Toumey A man drifting through life, in 1920’s Paris, scraping by in dead end jobs and generally soaking up the rich underbelly of Parisian life, finds himself falling helplessly short and discovering a very different view of life, looking up from below. With a keen understanding of social inequality and a wry sense of humour, he vividly recounts his experiences while down and out. This powerful performance from Phelim Drew brings Orwell’s classic to the stage with humour, empathy and wit. ‘Drew dominates the stage’ Emer O’Kelly, SUNDAY INDEPENDENT ‘Captivating performance’ IN DUBLIN Costume Design Therese McKeone Lighting Design Colm Maher Sound design Philip Stewart BEWLEY’S CAFÉ THEATRE @ POWERSCOURT Powerscourt Townhouse is directly behind Bewley\'s Cafe.
