Iron Annie takes to the stage!
Adapted from Luke Cassidy’s debut novel of the same name, the Iron Annie Cabaret is an interdisciplinary stage show, a celebration of music, theatre and literature set for a tour of Ireland in two legs in late 2021 and early 2022.
The show tells the story of Aoife, a force of a woman from Dundalk, and her obsessive love for the charismatic Annie. Expect all the things that might happen when you combine an unstable relationship with bootlegging booze and selling drugs. Yeah, it gets messy.
The character of Aoife is brought to life by Eleanor McLoughlin in a unique production, directed by Peter Moreton. The Iron Annie Cabaret will also feature entirely original music inspired by the book, composed and performed live by folk duo The Dandelion Few and border-punk quartet False Slag. Think Thelma and Louise meets Reservoir Dogs meets The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
