The Ed Dennehy Story

Ed always wanted to act or direct in theatre. Infant epilepsy, a lifelong battle with booze, or the bizarre hallucinations of van Gogh, Barrymore and spiders the size of dogs were not going to stop him. Living in reality was another matter. This is a physiological journey where a man struggles to find peace between the worlds of the real and the imaginary. Synopsis
