Fishamble: The New Play Company Present:

The Humours of Bandon

Written and Performed by Margaret McAuliffe

Directed by Stefanie Preissner

From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish Dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up in drawing rooms and Riverdance swells a national pride, but the public aren’t privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium.

Fishamble’s

THE HUMOURS OF BANDON is a coming of age story, full of heart, humour and wisdom, for anyone who had a childhood passion that threatened to overwhelm their life.

★★★★ terrific… sharp, charming and hilarious’ The Irish Times
