presented by Red Fox Theatre
Ireland, 1966. An ordinary skipper sails into the sleepy town of Dingle with a very unusual catch…
Chaos immediately ensues and a ridiculous series of events are put into motion, involving the head of the Irish government, a publican who happens to be an amateur marine biologist, a magical dolphin, the actual Queen of England, and a whole bunch of really confused nuns.
An unbelievable true story, Catch of the Day is a riotous romp of a play, all set in a West of Ireland pub. Built from the testimonies of those who remember, this ‘side-splittingly funny’ (The Irish Post *****) and ‘utterly joyous’ (Within Her Words *****) mash-up of live music, comedy, and theatre, is the ‘ideal show for a night out with friends and family’ (LondonTheatre1 *****).
Following an award-nominated run at Edinburgh Fringe (shortlisted for Best Musical), critically acclaimed, sell-out shows in London and Oxford, and fresh from its home-coming Irish tour, Catch of the Day is on UK tour this autumn.
Bring your mates and your mammy, grab a pint with the lads from Dingle, and get ready for one craic-ing night out.
One fish can make a big splash.
Running time: 1 hour (there is no interval)
