An illustrated, poetic, theatrical meditation celebrating the healing and redemptive powers of art, written and performed by Daniel Reardon. The show is based on ‘Fond Pageant’, the author’s book of poems published in 2018. The concept for the show was sparked by an unprovoked and inexplicable epileptic seizure suffered by Reardon while attending the opening night of “Ulysses” at the Abbey Theatre in October 2017. The historical and autobiographical links in the show contextualize the paintings and the poems, marking the various milestones in Reardon’s life; from early education in New York, arrival in Dublin, embarking on a career in the arts, marriage, children, and career to date as a 72-year-old man.
