Whale Theatre:  The Confirmation Suit:  Dinner Theatre Event

By Brendan Behan.  Adapted for the stage by Peter Sheridan

Whale Theatre,  Theatre Lane,  Greystones;  8:00 p.m.  Doors open 7:00 p.m.

Tickets €48 to include dinner.

Numbers are limited,  so please book early !!

Brendan Behan is twelve years old and about to make his confirmation.

It is a coming of age moment for all Catholic boys, full of excitement and promise.

Brendan learns that his confirmation suit will be made by Miss McCann.

Miss McCann lives upstairs in their tenement house and makes shrouds !!

As the story unfolds, the young Brendan becomes more and more agitated about his suit.

In the end,  we know that something has to give.

The question is whether Brendan will be able to hold it all together.

.

Written by Behan in 1953, The Confirmation Suit is filled with humour, insight and pathos.

It is a story that still resonates today, more than fifty years after its composition.

This is a stage adaptation not to be missed !!

Dinner menu will include Irish Whiskey Glazed Bacon.

Colcannon,  Glazed Carrots & Creamy Parsley Sauce.

Followed by Mrs. Sheridan’s Open Apple Tart with Vanilla Cream.

Performance also by local young talented Rosie Carter,  harpist.

Accompanied by Jade Phoenix,  singer.

Immediately after the show,  Director Peter Sheridan will host at Q&A session.

This should prove to be a most enjoyable evening !!
