A REAL TRIUMPH - The Sunday Independent

This wonderful, wild, funny and moving story that shocked the nation on its publication in 1960 has now been written for the stage by the author. This is a truly contemporary, highly theatrical, dramatic and free-flowing telling of this classic coming of age story.

It is the early sixties in a country village in Ireland. Kate and her attractive friend Baba are on the verge of womanhood and dreaming of spreading their wings in a wider world; of discovering love and luxury and liquor and, above all, fun.

With bawdy innocence, shrewd for all their inexperience, the girls romp their way through convent school to the bright lights of Dublin where Kate finds that suave, idealised lovers rarely survive the real world.

Cast includes: JD Kelleher, Holly Browne, Caoimhe O'Malley, Charlie Bonner, Rachael Dowling, Georgina Miller, Aileen Mythen and Michael Power
