One month before his death, retired civil servant and man of few words Paddy O’Grady had a sudden urge to talk. Using a portable cassette tape recorder, he recorded 15 hours of material: stories about leprechauns, aliens and lonely pharmacists; absurdist political satire; musings on life, love and death; radio shows with advertisements for products that never existed; ballads and poetry; and memories of life as a civil servant. Using these, Paddy’s granddaughter, Emma O’Grady’s one-woman show examines the fractured and fragile personas we present to the world, who we might be behind them and what we could be instead.
