HE was a man who loved two women.

HE was a man who loved two women.

That was how writer/director/performer, Peter Sheridan described the father he loved, also Peter, when he answered questions from the fascinated audience at the Riverbank Theatre in Newbridge on 2 February, writes Henry Bauress.

The Dublin born author received a standing ovation for the heart wrenching solo performance of his play, “47 Roses,” based on a previous memoir.

It is the story of his father, Peter, loved by his mother, Anna, but also by Doris, in what he described as a “love triangle.”

Blackburn based Doris, was an accepted annual visitor at the Sheridan home and following Peter’s death visited his grave each year, bringing 47 roses.
