La Mama presents: The Fall of the Roman Umpire

Theatre Performance

An Irish immigrant’s journey, an autobiographical one-man show that will make you laugh until you cry. 

Ireland, 1956 – a wee boy puts on his Da’s shirt and his Ma’s tea-cosy. Holding a mop he informs his family that he’s a centurion in The Fall of the Roman Umpire.

This hilarious tale follows Dennis through his childhood migration from Ireland to Australia via the Suez Canal, schooling in Adelaide, a secure job with Telstra in Outback S.A. before “throwing away a perfectly good career” to go to drama school at age 35.
