Gúna Nua Theatre Co. - Little Gem

THEATRE Wednesday 27th & Thursday 28th April @ 8.00pm

Love, sex, birth, death, dildos and salsa classes: Little Gem sees three generations of Dublin women on a wild and constantly surprising journey, expertly blending slapstick humour and sharp comic timing with strength, courage and honesty. Kay's got an itch that Gem can't scratch (but maybe Kermit can)... Lorraine's boss wants her to see a psychiatrist... Amber has fierce bad indigestion and the sambucas aren't getting rid of it. And then there's Paul, the bollix, who is just using Amber until he can get to Australia... and the hairy man who fancies Lorraine but fails to rise to the occasion... and of course Gem , who doesn't like the neighbours coming in to ‘mind' him. If all that wasn't bad enough, Little Gem makes his presence felt and life is never the same again. Starring Anne Kent (Fair City's Angela O'Connell), Neili Conroy and Birdy Beaman, directed by Paul Meade. After sell-out seasons in New York, London, Paris and Ireland's National Theatre and an upcoming tour of Australia, the ever popular Little Gem undertakes a countrywide tour. Don't miss it.

Adm: €15 / €12
