An East End gangster’s tale as you’ve never heard it before.
Better known as Skinny Dan or Longdog, Danny O’Halloran was a villain in the old fashioned sense of the word. A contemporary of the Great Train Robbers, ‘Mad’ Frankie Fraser and all those old-school London gangsters, he robbed banks for a living. But, unlike the infamous Kray twins, he never sought the spotlight.
After a life spent shuttling in and out of jail, scrapping to survive and leaving plenty of broken bones in his wake, Longdog died in 2005. Prairie Flower is set in that year.
Written and performed by Danny’s son Ryan Simms, this one man play turns a family’s dark past into a compelling new piece of theatre.
THIS PRODUCTION CONTAINS LANGUAGE WHICH SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND OFFENSIVE
