About the Show Less...

The popular revival of this comic Irish melodrama. Read More >

The ‘rollicking comedy’ is a tale of gloriously recognisable characters, as two star-crossed lovers pit their wits against the forces trying to keep them apart, which include the hideously villainous Corry Kinchela. But the starry-eyed pair has a helping hand from a shaughraun (the Gaelic word for ‘vagabond’) and his show-stealing dog Tatters.
