Some dreams can’t be stomped on!

Set in a sleepy town in Sligo, Grace O’Malley – the Warrior Queen is reincarnated as a coffee horsebox entrepreneur, high on debt and low on self-esteem. When a blast from her past wrestling rival Ruby Stephens arrives in town, decades after making it big, Grace’s world is literally turned upside down. When a chance at a cashprize comes her way so does a shot at an unforeseen redemption, as she contends to win back her title which she lost at the U18’s Community Games in ’94. Some dreams can’t be stomped on!

* A return ferry at 10pm will be provided for the Bere, Heir, Sherkin and Whiddy Islands performances
