A Passage to Ireland is an original musical revue which is full of warmth, humour and pathos as the story unfolds at the end of the1850s, after Brigid Finnigan escaped from the Great Famine in Ireland as a teenager and began a new life in the north of England. She settled down to make friends at the Irish Centre and married a young cutlery worker, Arthur Eastgate. Life was good, they had two children and Arthur became the owner of his own business. But Bridget, heard the call, the little village of Old Durra in the far west of Ireland began to call to her, softly at first but it soon reached the point where she and her new family had to heed the call and this is where the show picks up the story. Music, song and dance has long been the lifeblood of Ireland and that is how we follow this young familys journey of inquiry; in word, dance and song from the Yorkshire railway station of Sheffield, through the great Port of Liverpool. Then on the Roscommon crossing the Irish Sea, the time spent in Dublin in the rare auld times, meeting up with family and childhood friends. Finally arriving at journeys end in rural Mayo where the memories, good and bad, are suddenly all around Brigid. She finds what family and neighbours survived and stayed in Ireland, and she discovers what has happened to her childhood home. The laughter and the heartache, what is past and what is to come all melt together to display the triumph of family and the human spirit. This is Brideys life, this is Brideys story, and yet it is the story of Ireland.
