A limited number of tickets are still available for Hanging with the Elephant: An Evening with Michael Harding on Wednesday, 18th March at 8pm at Garter Lane Theatre.

A chronicler of ordinary life in midland Ireland through his column in the Irish Times, no one was more surprised than Michael when he was struck down with a depression in the summer of 2012. His subsequent record of recovery, the multi-award winning book Staring at Lakes, brought him to a whole new level of engagement with audiences throughout the country. Following his hugely popular nationwide tour of venues in Ireland in the autumn of 2013, Michael Harding, author, playwright and Irish Times columnist, is on his travels again in his unique one man show, talking with great honesty and wit about life, love and growing old.

Coinciding with the publication of his latest book Hanging with the Elephant, he will once again enthral audiences with a night of storytelling, musings and readings from his very best work. Hilarious yet poignant, homespun yet profound, down-to-earth yet prone to amazing flights of fancy, there’s nothing quite like an evening with Michael Harding. Hear him speak with openness, honesty and great wit on how he continues to attempt to tame the ‘elephant’ – an Asian metaphor for the unruly mind.

Michael has previously won the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards 2013 Non-Fiction Book of the Year and the John Murray Show Listeners Choice Award Book of the Year for his novel Staring at Lakes.
