A hauntingly accurate portrayal of a young Phil Lynott
Phil Lynott lookalike Miles Mlambo takes you on a rollercoaster journey through the formative years of the legendary Thin Lizzy frontman.
A black baby born to an unmarried Irish mother during the ‘No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish years, financial circumstances force Phil’s mother Philomena to send him to live with his grandparents in 1950’s Dublin.
In a spellbinding show Miles relates how a young Phil deals with being the only black kid in school – and most of Dublin for that matter, his discovery of music and poetry, his first bands, his first girlfriend, his experiences in the Dublin arts scene and frequent trips to Manchester to stay in The Biz – Philomena’s hotel for touring artists.
Exploring racism, parenthood and identity, this hauntingly accurate portrayal offers an amazing insight into Phil’s formative years and how they shaped him to become one of the most important figures in Irish music history.
