Vagabonds: My Phil Lynott Odyssey

BY ROBERT MOUNTFORD/CHRIS LARNER.
DIRECTED BY CHRIS LARNER.
25 May -
3 June 2021

Overview

“Welcome to the house where heroes dwell.”

Rob Mountford, a man saddled with a mess of cultural identity, is seeking answers. In Rob’s quest to prove an unlikely Irish heritage, Cú Chullain challenges him to tell the tale of a great Irish hero. Stumbling upon the statue of quintessential Irish Rock Legend – Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott – the stage seems set…but as Rob dips in, his own rock’n’roll story takes over: a story as tragic and funny as life itself.

Robert Mountford starred as Parolles in Alls Well That Ends Well at Jermyn Street Theatre. In an extensive career on stage and screen, he has appeared at the National Theatre and the RSC, and won a UK Theatre Award nomination.
