"Jennifer Rogers writing is fluid and accomplished" Irish Theatre Magazine

Three ordinary workers embark on a brave new adventure and make it big in a national talent competition, changing the world as they see it.

 

Niamh, Tracy and Liz work for June. On a whim, the eldest worker Niamh makes a bet with June on a talent show. The wager is set: who ever is the first to be knocked out in the heats must leave the business. However, June has decided to retire from management anyway. She employes Beverly to take over; but Tracy, the more boisterous of the workers, tests her strength.

Niamh is tormented by the death of her son Danny. Meanwhile, Liz finds happiness up on stage and decides to take a chance and brave a new life without her abusive boyfriend Keith. Amid the drama of their lives, is the dream of making it on the big stage. Of finding a new way to live, and discovering the power that comes with believing in dreams.

"Jennifer Rogers script and direction are crisp" The Scotsman

A Night to Remember threads the courage and strenght behind such individuals that brave the stage in the hope of a new life, and a new world.

A Night to Remember at the Crane Lane on Wednesday 16th- Saturday 19th February. Doors: 8pm. Tickets: 15 Euro.
