"If I had urinated immediately after breakfast, the Mob would never have burnt down the Orphanage." So begins the acclaimed, prize-winning tale of Jude, a Tipperary-reared orphan who on his 18th birthday sets off to discover the wide world and his true parentage. His picaresque adventures take him first to the "Sodom of the West" -- Galway -- where he falls in love, encounters temptations galore and, disguised as Stephen Hawking, unwittingly blows up the HQ of a Multi-National Corporation -- and himself.Jude hotfoots it to Dublin, in pursuit of Angela, ex-Galway chip-shop employee and his True Love. A spectacular, riotous chase through the city of Ulysses ensues, transformed by Gough's talent into a dazzling metaphor of 21st century violence, alienation and progress.
