Madhouse – Based on the unbelievable true life story of comedian PJ Gallagher.
When PJ was ten, his Ma, a nurse, moved six men with schizophrenia into the family home to care for them full time.
“It was like this. When you went through our front door and turned right, you were in mad land, where the mad lads lived. And when you turned left – me, Ma, Da and the dog. It was madness. Absolute madness.”

“Katherine Lynch plays Ma to martyred perfection.” Sunday Times
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Madhouse is crazy good. It’s a pacy, brilliantly written production full of PJ’s trademark humour.” www.dublinlive.ie
Following the success of its premiere at The Abbey Peacock Theatre as part of Dublin Fringe Festival 2018, Madhouse comes to The Everyman.
