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.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
