The New Play Company presents The Humours of Bandon @ The Mermaid Arts Centre

24th February 2018 @ 8:00 pm

Don’t be afraid of that floor, hammer it!’

Nobody knows where their 5 year old will take that first, after-school activity. To the surprise of her mother, Annie takes it all the way to the top echelons of the Irish Dancing Championships. We meet Dubliner Annie on the eve of the biggest competition of her teenage life, her burning desire to win shared only by her teacher as her mother watches on with bewilderment and pride. Will she win and if so, in what way?

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.
