NEW DUBLIN ensemble, One Duck Theatre Company, arrive in the Town Hall Theatre on Tuesday January 26 at 8pm, with the world premiere production of its debut play, The Poor Little Boy with No Arms. A fast-paced, dark comedy-drama, it explores secrecy, control, and the Irish psyche.

A teacher called Ruby Ruby arrives in Skibberceannaigh, ‘The World's Most Liveable Community’, to a warm welcome from the friendly townsfolk.
