Review: THE COLLEEN BAWN at the Lyric Theatre

Don’t miss this madcap, melodramatic, musical co-production of THE COLLEEN BAWN

Dion Boucicault’s exuberant tale of desire, duty and betrayal, based on an infamous true crime.

A financial crisis forces Hardress Cregan to choose between true love and family honour, a dilemma which leads to the forming of a horrifying plan. Boucicault’s masterful interweaving of plot and character, comedy and suspense, has been captivating audiences since it premiere in 1860.

A co-production by the Lyric Theatre & Bruiser Theatre Company. Directed by Lisa May.

Incredible role-switching performance from such a talented cast. Energetic, inventive, funny – with a well-deserved standing ovation. This has been my favourite production so far this year. A great evening of entertainment. Go and see as you will not be disappointed.

Here’s what the audience said:

“It is a true masterpiece of writing, producing and directing.

“To say the cast were AMAZING doesn’t seem to give them enough credit.”

“It was one of the best theatre productions I have ever seen!”

“Outstanding… A must see!”
