Brassneck Theatre Company who brought you ‘THE HOLY, HOLY BUS’, ‘MAN IN THE MOON’ &; ‘A NIGHT WITH GEORGE’, return to the Lyric Theatre this week May 9-14, with their latest world première, ‘THE BLUE BOY OF GLENMORE’.
Winter 1978. Cooley Mountains, Ireland. Jemmy John is a tortured soul. The sheep on the glen and the farm are his life but his younger sister Colleen yearns for something much more. With the help of a local car mechanic, Colleen is determined to escape Glenmore for the chance at a better life… but her older brother is having none of it. The life-long conflict between these sibling rivals is the catalyst that ignites the shocking events that unfold. A haunting, absorbing and sensational dark-comedy, ‘The Blue Boy of Glenmore’ is a truly unmissable piece of theatre!
