‘Who is Arthur Kruger?’

A dramatisation of Oran Ryan’s cult novel Ten Short Novels By Arthur Kruger in the words of Arthur Kruger, who is and is not, who is himself and who is another.

This haunting dramatisation will challenge understandings of identity and existence, will scare and enrich, and just plain change you.

Your Arthur Krugers for the evening will be Oran Ryan, Anamaria Crowe Serrano and Ruairi Conneely.

Oran Ryan was created by Arthur Kruger and brought forth as a novelist. He has also written The Death of Finn and the play Don Quixote has been Promoted.

Anamaria Crowe Serrano is Another. She has written poetry, fiction and nonfiction, and is a well published writer whose publications include Femispheres.

Ruairi Conneely’s official biography states that he is not Arthur Kruger. This fact remains under debate. A native-born Londoner, Ruairi has been re-born in the city of Dublin where he now resides.

Who is Arthur Kruger is a Seven Towers Agency production. Seven Towers Agency is a not-for-profit Arts Agency. Details of the Seven Towers Agency are available atslundberg.

Attendees will be given the opportunity to purchase Ten Short Novels by Arthur Krugerat the event, and to get them signed by the Arthur Krugers.

20 years ago in the early
hours of 20 November 1991 East Wall resident Steve Conway looked with
horror at the 20 foot waves crashing over his
ship and at the freezing angry waters of the North Sea and bade an
emotional farewell to his friends and shipmates as they prepared
themselves for the fact that their lives were just about to come to am
end through drowning in those freezing swirling waters.

Steve was on the Ross Revenge, the last of the Radio Caroline ships
and they had just run aground on the treacherous Goodwin Sands off the
coast of Kent. Steve survived the shipwreck, but only just, and on 21
November at 7pm in the Sean O’Casey Community Centre in East Wall he
will read from his memoir ‘Shiprocked- Life on the Waves with Radio
Caroline’ about this and other memorable incidents from his time

living at sea with Radio Caroline and talk about the effect this
momentous event has had on his life.

This event is organised by Seven Towers Agency (www.seventowers.ie,
info, 00353872283351) a not for profit literary agency
and publishing house staffed entirely by volunteers. The event is
free but an opportunity will be available to make a donation to the
RNLI and to the Sean O’Casey Community Centre and also to buy signed
copies of Steve’s book at a special reduced price.

Dubliner Steve Conway lives in

East Wall. During the 1980s Steve lived at sea with the radio pirate
Radio Caroline, and literally almost gave his life to the cause.
Steve also worked for Phantom FM from it’s pirate days through to it’s
reestablishment as a licenced station and he continues to broadcast on
the now land based Radio Caroline as well as on Radio Seagull the last
of the off-shore radio stations. The best selling ‘Shiprocked – Life
on the Waves with Radio Caroline’ is Steve’s first book and his second
– a memoir drawn from his full 25 years on radio will be published in
February 2012
