ESSENCE OF IRELAND Set for Marlowe Studio, 19 March
AN exciting live celebration of all things Irish comes to The Marlowe Studio next month.
Set against the backdrop of Ireland, England and America in the 20th Century, and inspired by true events, Essence Of Ireland tells a story of happiness and heartache through music, dance and song.
The show features original choreography and many popular Irish songs, including Galway Girl, Irish Rover, Danny Boy, Molly Mallone and many more.
Creative Director and co-writer Ged Graham said: "My Irish heritage is very special to me and really defines who I am. As an Irishman who has spent most of my adult life away from Ireland, I wanted to create a show that would give everybody an insight into being Irish.
"We set out to tell one man's story that would really reflect the experience of every Irish man and woman who left Ireland's shore, and most of all, a story that the audience would relate to. This, I believe, is the reason behind the success of the show to date - and add to that the fact that us Irish folk don't need an excuse for a party! It's great craic!"
The cast of Essence Of Ireland is made up of multi-national world-class dancers and talented singers, all of whom have Irish roots.
Essence Of Ireland is at The Marlowe Theatre at 7.30pm on Wednesday 19 March. Tickets are £21.50 (concessions £20.50), from the Box Office on 01227 787787, or at marlowetheatre.com.
