Where The Wild Things Go

This lovely wee short from all round GOAT Fergal Costello that I worked on last year has just gone online. I got to play Max from Maurice Sendak’s Where The Wild Things Are as an entirely unconvincing teenager and an entirely convincing haggard 30 something. Based on D. Gilson’s lovely poem about growing up and getting your shit together. I’m acting alongside my old mucker Clare Monnelly, who had the misfortune of playing both my girlfriend and my ma in a one month period in early 2019.

Here’s the film:
