“★★★★★ Hilarious and harrowing… Dockery is a verbal magician.”

-NOW Magazine, Toronto.

“★★★★★ Delirium is fast-paced, energetic, and hilarious.”

-Theatre in London


In a retracing of his grandfather’s book on butterflies, Dockery tells the true story of looking for meaning in the mysterious connection between love and death. Equally comical and heartbreaking, Delirium takes us from a Toronto airport to the Nevada desert, and from a Brooklyn apartment to the Mexican redoubt of the Monarch butterfly, telling a story of both falling in love and falling apart.

Brooklyn-based Martin Dockery spends the majority of the year touring his eight one-person shows through Canada, Australia, the UK, and the US. Six of them are autobiographical (Wanderlust, The Surprise, the Bike Trip, The Holy Land Experience,The Exclusion Zone, and Delirium) and two are fictional (Bursting Into Flames and The Dark Fantastic). He has won "Best of Fest" awards at theater festivals in Vancouver, Ottawa, New York, Orlando, London, Toronto, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Victoria, San Francisco, and Adelaide. He's performed at The Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, and twice headlined the London Storytelling Festival in England. Dockery has also written and performed with his theater company Concrete Drops. He has toured with Vanessa Quesnelle across North America in his original two-person plays Oh, That Wily Snake!, The Pit, Moonlight After Midnight, Love Is A Battlefield, and with Jon Paterson in Inescapable. He has a BA in English from Kenyon College (where he won the Paul Newman Award for acting) and an MFA in playwriting from Columbia University.
