The Humours of Bandon
About The Humours of Bandon
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.
Meet Dubliner Annie on the eve of the biggest competition of her teenage life, as she charts us through the various peaks and troughs of her Irish dancing career. Will she win the title and, if so, in what way?
From the Olivier Award-winning Fishamble comes The Humours of Bandon, a spirited coming- of-age story full of heart, laughter and pathos for anyone who’s had a childhood passion that threatened to consume their life.
