Lambo by Hugh Travers
A radio version of Lambo by Hugh Travers, first presented at Dublin Fringe Festival, 2013.
Michael Ford Fitzgerald stars as the late and much beloved radio presenter Gerry Ryan in Lambo – a fictionalised account of a story that stormed the airwaves and gripped the nation almost three decades ago.
1987: a story hits the headlines that sends an unsuspecting Irish nation reeling in shock and disgust. A story of brutality and bloodshed, of depravity and gross deception. A story of murder. Gerry Ryan has killed a lamb. Kind of. Maybe.
What starts as a radio slot about survival guides on the Gay Byrne Show quickly descends into media frenzy. With blood on his hands, Gerry Ryan must face police investigation, political intrigue and while trying to save his career, Lambo paradoxically made his career.
A co-production with Underscore Productions and RTÉ Drama On One.
Directed by Ronan Phelan
