Following his involvement with Science Gallery, Rua also had his own one-man show in the Dublin Fringe Festival last year (2013), called ‘Of Rogues and Knaves‘, which explored the art of the con, card cheats, pick pockets, liars and thieves. This was the only magic themed show accepted by the Fringe Festival this year and received stellar reviews from the likes of the Irish Times, who kindly mentioned that ‘Gleeson clearly has Derren Brown in his sights‘. and the Irish Theatre Magazine who said that ‘Gleeson has established himself as a master in the dying though still fascinating craft of live deception‘, and The Metro Herald listing it as their favorite show of the Month-long festival!
