The Humours of Bandon
By Written and Performed by Margaret McAuliffe

‘Don’t be afraid of that floor, hammer it!’

Annie is a 16-year-old Irish Dancer from Dublin, Ireland and we meet her on the eve of the biggest competition of her life, the Irish Open Championships 1999. She charts us through the various successes and disappointments of her Irish Dancing life. We share her mind-numbing commitment and burning desire to win the coveted Irish Open title. Will she win and, if so, in what way?

From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish Dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up in drawing rooms and Riverdance swells a national pride, but the public aren’t privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium.

A coming-of-age story, THE HUMOURS OF BANDON is an award-winning play, full of heart, humour and wisdom, for anyone who had a childhood passion that threatened to overwhelm their life.
