3 Lies about Brooklyn centres on Farrell’s troubled childhood and the discovery that he was one of Ireland’s notorious Magdalene Laundry babies shipped to the US under the auspices of one of the Catholic Church’s uglier institutions. Adopted at 3 and a half by dysfunctional working class Irish couple in Brooklyn, this is a story of Dickensian Orphanages, sexual abuse and the shadowy corruption of the Church herself. It is also largely comic.

The second half of the bill is the latest in Farrell’s ongoing Walt Whitman: Time Traveler series and focuses on Walt Whitman and his Irish born 'comerado' Peter Doyle and their banter as they pretend one day, to complete the visit to Ireland which was cancelled after Whitman’s first stroke in 1873.
