James Moran: The Assassination of Pope Urban II

A show that has absolutely nothing to do with the real Pope Urban II. It’s an experimental comedy show about the nightmarish life and brutal death of Pope Urban II. Born a runt, Urban II lived with a wasting disease of the body and spirit that has been eradicated by modern medicine. After being born and raised in a graveyard by friendly ghouls and dead bodies he went to the Vatican where he was elected Pope in 1088. Eleven years later he was abducted and murdered by visitors from a distant planet.
Using his diaries as reference, James Moran (Dublin Fringe Festival, Vodafone Comedy Festival) shines a light on Pope Urban II’s innermost thoughts through live performance, script readings and lecture from the pulpit.
Running time 50 minutes
