THE HUMOURS OF BANDON

Saturday 24 November at 7.45pm

Tickets - £13, concessions - £11

 

 

‘Don’t be afraid of that floor, hammer it!’

 

On the eve of the Irish Open championship, we meet Annie, a 16 year old Dubliner, as she charts us through the various successes and disappointments of her Irish Dancing life. We share her mind numbing commitment and burning desire to win the Irish Open title. Will she win and, if so, in what way?

 

From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish Dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up in drawing rooms and Riverdance swells a national pride, but the public aren’t privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium.

 

The Humours Of Bandon is a coming of age story, full of heart, humour and wisdom, for anyone who had a childhood passion that threatened to overwhelm their life.

 

Developed as part of Show in a Bag an artist development initiative of Tiger Dublin Fringe, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.

Remember P.E. kit. Cancel Free Trial. Call mum. Everyone writes instructions to their future selves. But what if the future starts writing back? 

 

Rosy Carrick has to build a time machine – because her future self has already done so and is now stuck 100 years in the past… Thus begins a complex and original blend of science, Schwarzenegger and self-determination as Rosy attempts to rewrite history and save herself. Winner of The Infallibles Award for Theatrical Excellence and Brighton Fringe’s Best New Play Award 2018, Passionate Machine is a playful, intelligent and searingly honest story about obsession, salvation and finding yourself – literally.
