Now, she brings her singular voice to an unlikely love story.
One night an eighteen-year-old Irish girl, recently arrived in London to attend drama school, meets an older man a well-regarded actor in his own right.While she is naive and thrilled by life in the big city, he is haunted by more than a few demons, and the clamorous relationship that ensues risks undoing them both.
A captivating story of passion and innocence, joy and discovery set against the vibrant atmosphere of 1990s London over the course of a single year, THE LESSER BOHEMIANS glows with the eddies and anxieties of growing up, and the transformative intensity of a powerful new love.
