Lorcan Cranitch delivers a one-man-show as he interprets Doyle's second collection of stories. He expertly complements Doyle's writing style with an authentic Irish brogue and takes it to another level with astounding changes in pitch for women’s, children’s, and even men’s voices. Cranitch's expressive delivery of Doyle's works is so complex and entertaining that it nearly makes the content of each story superfluous. One hears Doyle's dry wit and insights into the Irish male persona as Cranitch deftly leaps from emotion to emotion. Men audibly struggle for their lost power, virility, health, social standing, and love while outwardly taking the culturally expected stance of bravura. Heartrending situations peppered with pub banter and weary women create vivid emotional terrain, both hilarious and moving. A.W.
