The ever popular Beezneez Theatre Company comes to The Library Theatre, Luton for one day only with "An Ordinary Man." This show features a tour de force performance of John McDwyer's play which has brought audiences to their feet all over Ireland and the UK.
Funny and heart-breaking in equal measure; An Ordinary Man takes us on the life journey of a simple sawyer through births, deaths and marriages with a bit of football and ballroom dancing thrown in just for craic until, ultimately, we realise that while there may be an ordinary man, there is no such thing as an ordinary life.
Be prepared to laugh, prepared to cry and be prepared for an unforgettable evening of pure theatre. Directed by the author, An Ordinary Man will live long in the memory of anyone lucky enough to catch this show.
Duration: 75 minutes
Pre-show live music at the bar from 15:00 and 18:30
Part of the St.Patrick's Day 2020 Celebrations brought to you in partnership with The Luton Irish Forum.

Luton Library Theatre
Luton Library Theatre opened in 1962 as a lecture theatre before gradually changing to a traditional entertainment venue with 256 seats and two side aisles.
The Theatre began to build up a programme of amateur and professional drama, film, music of all types and children's events. In fact a pretty long list of events that covers almost every taste!
All of this continued through the sixties, seventies and eighties. During the nineties the seating was changed to a more modern style and colour with a centre isle with a slight rake. This meant the amount of seating had to be reduced to the current capacity of 238.
In the late nineties and early noughties, there were more changes both fabric and technical makeup of the Theatre. This brings us up to 2009, when the Library itself closed for a major refurbishment. Some improvements were made to the front of house and bar areas of the theatre, plus the introduction of a new cafe.
Luton Library Theatre with it's 238 seated capacity auditorium and Bar Area. See Venue Hire for more information.
