The Voice Within: A Showband Story

Set in Donegal in the 1960’s golden era of music, the story follows an unassuming young man who finds himself at the helm of an up-and-coming showband. Garnering attention from two local girls, Tommy O’Grady struggles with his new found persona both on and off stage, and the love triangle that ensues. Through a series of memorable characters, we witness a snapshot in time when Ireland is finally starting to find its’ voice. Alongside a live seven piece band, this nostalgic play includes hits such as “The Hucklebuck”, “Rock Around the Clock” and “From the Candystore On the Corner” among many others.
