The hilarious adventure of Zocorro, the wanna-be Spanish Rose tour continues.
Every August, 32 Roses from all over the world come together in Tralee, Co. Kerry, all of them either born in Ireland or of Irish descent. One of them will be crowned The Rose of Tralee. This is the heartbreaking story of the year the "RiberillaDelAltaHazaña" Rose donned the sash, to fight for truth, for justice, in the Spanish way.
Find out what really happens behind the scenes in Tralee; learn how to peel an apple with a knife and fork, how to get out of the car without showing your knickers, and how when in the company of boys, you must never wear white, because it reminds them of sheets.
"Zocorro Rose of Tralee" sold out at the 2009 Absolut Dublin Fringe and has since enjoyed huge success at Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin; The Mill Theatre, Dundrum; The Cat Laughs Fringe, Kilkenny; The Blue Frog Venue, Ennistymon, and The Siamsa Tire, Tralee where the real Roses and their families howled with delight at this keen satire; part of the official programme of events of the 2010 Rose of Tralee International Festival. Zocorro's tour continues with the following dates:
