Heyday - The Mic Christopher Story + Q&A

About this Event

Director: Alan Leonard

Producer: Níall Carver Fiona Graham & Alan Leonard

Lead Cast: Glen Hansard, Mike Scott, Lisa Hannigan, Sharon Horgan & Josh Ritter

One of Ireland’s great musical talents finds his body shattered by a road accident. After a miraculous recovery, he is reborn, transformed, and in his last year inspires his friends onto greatness. Mic Christopher was an enormous musical talent who since his death in 2001, remains largely unknown outside of Ireland.

This story charts Mic Christopher’s rise, fall, rebirth, and legacy – how he leads his wide circle of friends (an entire generation of Irish musicians ) onto fame, success and new artistic highs.

Told through the eyes of these friends (including Oscar-winner Glen Hansard, writer/actor Sharon Horgan, Mike Scott of The Waterboys, Bronagh Gallagher, Josh Ritter, Lisa Hannigan, Rónán Ó’Snodaigh, and others), this epic story of extraordinary music and friendship will both touch and inspire.
