CATCH OF THE DAY
06 October 2021
Ireland, 1966. Joe Welch, a skipper, sails into Dingle bay with a very unusual catch…what follows is a ridiculous series of events involving Eamon De Valera, Queen Elizabeth and a whole lot of nuns.
An unbelievable true story, Catch of The Day, is a raucous and little-bit-political play with live trad-inspired music, all set in a West of Ireland pub.
Built from interviews with those who remember, this ‘side -splittingly funny’ (The Irish Post *****) piece of energetic “gig-theatre” has been teaching international audiences about Anglo -Irish relations in very silly ways since its debut it 2018.
