Win Tickets to Little Gem
Tue 8 - Sat 19 June@8pm
Love, sex, birth, death, dildos and salsa classes: three generations of Dublin women on a wild and constantly surprising journey.
An extraordinary year of courage, comedy and romance in the award-winning hit of the 2008 Dublin Fringe Festival.

Lorraine attacks a customer at work and her boss wants her to see a psychiatrist
Amber has fierce bad indigestion and the Sambucas arent getting
