Bewley's Cafe Theatre is proud to present... THE HUMOURS OF BANDON Written by and starring Margaret Mc Auliffe Directed by Stefanie Preissner Mon - Sat at 1pm Special Soiree Performance - 7pm Thurs 21 July Tickets 10 - 15 Euro(plus booking fee) - CLICK HERE This multi-award winning coming of age drama is set in the heady world of competitive Irish Dancing. From its superlative debut at the Dublin Fringe Festival in 2016, The Humours of Bandon was picked up by Fishamble: The New Play Company and toured extensively both nationally and internationally from 2017-2019 including a highly successful four-week sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it was listed at no. 11 in the top 20 reviewed shows during its first week. You do not want to miss this hilarious account of the trials and tribulations of Ireland's competitive Irish Dance scene... 'Don't be afraid of that floor, hammer it!' On the eve of the Irish Open championship, we meet Annie, a 16-year-old Dubliner, as she charts us through the various successes and disappointments of her Irish Dancing life. We share her mind-numbing commitment and burning desire to win the Irish Open title. Will she win and, if so, how? From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish Dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up in drawing rooms and Riverdance swells a national pride, but the public aren't privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium. 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.
