Damien Leith discusses his new one-man play
The Irish-born singer/songwriter /actor/playwright has come a long way since winning Australian Idol in 2006. He discusses his new one-man play with Digital Journal.
Enjoying ongoing success and maintaining a cherished place in the public eye has proved tricky for many who have followed the TV talent show route to fame. Damien Leith seems to be one of the lucky ones, though hard work, dedication to his art and obvious talent have clearly played their part.
Now, the 39-year-old Irishman, who has called Australia home for nearly 13 years, is preparing to stage his one-man play, The Parting Glass, in Melbourne at Chapel Off Chapel. This self-written piece, set in an Irish bar and featuring traditional Irish music played by a live band, was previously performed at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in 2012.
