Dancing In The Moonlight: A Play About Phil Lynott

Miles Mlambo

A solo show exploring the formative years of Phil Lynott.

Set in 1960’s Dublin, Phil tells his life story, from birth to the formation of Thin Lizzy. This one-man show explores Phil’s experience as a musician, from earlier bands, first girlfriends and the difficulties of being the only black kid in his school. This is the story of how a young man who grew up in Crumlin went on to become one of the greatest rock icons of the 1970’s.

“…The sky’s the limit for one of rock’s hidden stories that deserves wider attention” – The Edinburgh Reporter
“…This complexity of character isn’t easy to convey within a 50-minute show, but Mlambo does so with apparent ease” – Voice Mag
“…Miles Mlambo, who looks and sounds hauntingly similar to the departed singer” – The Edit GCU

Actor Miles Mlambo and Director Chris Gates will do a Q&A following the performance of the show on the 12th of October.


Tickets €16 | €14 student/OAP/unemployed

About The Writer :

Miles Mlambo graduated from Arts Ed School of acting in 2007. As well acting across the UK, he’s also learned the ropes behind the scenes in theatre with a view to start his own company focussing on new/untold stories. This being his first production his only history with staging shows was putting this one on at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019, which thankfully was very successful. He had planned a tour in summer 2020, so is very excited to finally be getting out there.
