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.

Triple Fringe First and Olivier Award winning Fishamble returns to Dance Base with this coming of age play about the trials and triumphs of competitive Irish Dancing, for anyone whose childhood passion threatened to overwhelm their life.

Developed as part of Show in a Bag, an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
