Gerard Mannix Flynn was on the Leonard Lopate Show recently to discuss "James X," a play that looks at the abusive treatment of children in Irish institutions through the eyes of man who was raised in one. He also told us that he's been listening to Amy Winehouse and reveals what his favorite comfort food is!
Playwright/performer Gerard Mannix Flynn talks about the U.S. premiere of “James X.” An Irish government tribunal of inquiry into institutions responsible for cruel and inhumane treatment of children is in session. In the foyer, James X, one of those children, now a man, anxiously prepares to offer the testimony which he hopes will unshackle him from the past. “James X” is playing at 45 Bleecker Street.
