The Pulitzer Prize winning book comes to life on stage in this World Premiere production at the Grand Opera House

Angela's Ashes - A New Musical

Tue 01 Aug - Sat 05 Aug 2017

Musicals

This major new musical adaptation of Frank McCourt’s worldwide best-selling memoir is an uplifting story of hope, fortitude and family.

The Pulitzer Prize winning book comes to life on stage in this World Premiere production at the Grand Opera House. Featuring unforgettable songs and melodies, this emotional and poignant retelling of a childhood in Limerick and beyond is told with a rare lyricism and a warm inimitable sense of humour.

Hidden in the notorious lanes of Limerick, Frank's parents struggle to provide for him and his brothers. We follow one young mans escapades as he negotiates a drunken father, a helpless mother, pompous priests, bullying schoolmasters, money-lenders and dancing-teachers - culminating in a defiant escape to a new life in America.
With superb performances and a haunting score, Angela’s Ashes will bring you to tears one minute, and have you laughing out loud the next. This new musical promises to be one of the major theatrical events in Ireland in 2017.

Music and Lyrics by Adam Howell
