Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, except in New York, where LGBT groups have been banned from the St. Patrick’s Day Parade for over 22 years. Since 2000, the ‘St. Pat’s For All Parade’ in Queens has championed diversity and inclusion.
A sell-out performance at the 2014 ‘Tiger Dublin Fringe’ and playing 6 nights at ‘Frigid Festival’, New York, 2015; in this one-man-show, Brian Fleming (is back!) directed by Raymond Keane, to take us for a romp through 14 years of celebration and resistance.
Brian Fleming is a drummer, theatre maker and festival director; working extensively in theatre and dance, including with the Irish national theatre, The Abbey and with Dance Theatre of Ireland. He has also recorded on over 40 albums and performed with musicians such as Davy Spillane, Mamady Keita and The Chieftains. Brian is credited in the Guinness Book of World Records 2001 as the creator of the ‘Millennium Drum’, the world’s largest drum.
“Irish Fringe Favourite at the Tiger Dublin Fringe 2014... there’s something original and sweet about seeing a tale of gayness, diversity and tolerance projected through a different lens.” - The Irish Times
“Fleming’s performance is strong and he knows how to work an audience. Above all, he’s likeable; he’s the guy down the pub who’s just come back from New York and the pints are flowing.” - The Public Reviews
