The Humours of Bandon

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Margaret McAuliffe 

  • Synopsis

    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.

    For Annie O'Loughlin-Harte, Irish dancing is everything and nothing. The Humours of Bandon examines the importance of coming first and why it matters.
