‘Billy In The Bowl’: The Play



The disabled pretty boy who mugged raped and murdered while confined to a primitive copper wheelchair pod gets the infamy he deserves.

Already immortalised on a Le Cool Dublin cover.

Now, a play, The Curious Case of The Stoneybatter Strangler from Maylin Productions.

And it’s site-specific.
