Frank’s a hard man in a dirty old town. Loan shark, poker player, owner of The Ace of Spades Club in Paradise Heights. He’s taken on some of the hardest that have ever drew breath, they’ve all ended up broken…or buried. But a new threat has risen, an immigrant crime wave has threatened his position at the top of the hill. Frank’s never been one to walk away from a fight…
Tonight he’s walled up inside his club, and you are trapped in there with him as the ghosts and the demons from his past are queuing up to take him down. Trapped in here with him, you begin to realise that all is not as it seems and the walls are coming down on the crime king of Paradise Heights. But there’s still some bite left in the shark, wounded and raging – he’s at his most dangerous.
But waiting in the dark is his toughest and most dangerous adversary of them all…
I’d forgotten what a roaring demon Morgan actually is. With nightmare flourishes worthy of Ramsey Campbell or Robert Aichman. Morgan is both Richard III and MacBeth, it’s an astonishing piece and a tour-de-force from O’Byrne.

A real tour-de-force written and performed by Joe O’Byrne that made me draw and fear and feeling in a whole new way. As a character study this is first class. I’m Frank Morgan – RewiRED was a thrill ride…
Emily Oldfield, Louder Than War
O’Byrne delivers a mesmeric and utterly disturbing performance
Brian Gorman, The Public Reviews
An unrepentant and self aware villain in the style of Richard III, there is no doubt the play has retained its power.
David Chadderton, whatsonstage.com
A real tour-de-force, a dark and compelling piece of theatre, punctuated by sharp acidic humour. There is a surprising amount of action. A fine and well observed performant and intricate of a very dark world point of view… will leave you pondering the man and his world long after seeing the show.

To describe I’m Frank Morgan – RewiRED as a one man show or monologue is correct, but this simply does not do justice to it, it’s so much more than that. I’d love to see more of Frank Morgan.
