The West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival presents “Humours of Bandon” this summer on Sherkin Island!
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.
Written and Performed by Margaret McAuliffe and Directed by Stefanie Preissner, 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.
