Review: Phelim cycles to success in The Third Policeman

By Terry Blain

Two years ago Belfast musician Colin Reid distilled Flann O'Brien's weird, wonderful novel.

Saturday's 70-minute show saw Dublin actor Phelim Drew replace Stephen Rea as narrator for the revival, and brought a fascinatingly different flavour to O'Brien's tale of large, moustachioed policemen and man-bicycle hybridity.

The show remains a treat for lovers of O'Brien's great novel – and, naturally, of bicycles.
