St. Mungo’s The Ladies – by Grimes & McKee – 21 Aug

With a rocking soundtrack and a rollicking laugh every 12.5 seconds, St Mungo’s The Ladies is the nailed-on show to see this summer in Belfast.

The GAA football club are content with their mid-table second division survivors status when Dearbhla McDermott asks St Mungo’s if she can set up a ladies team. The chairman can’t really say no; she’s his god-daughter after all. So long as it doesn’t affect the men’s team, of course.

And so unfolds an inevitable war of training pitch availability disputes, mini-bus bust-ups and summits about the state of the toilets. And many, many cups of tea. But the biggest problem is: The women are beginning to get better than the men. And the novelty act for the big Scór competition is a total balls up.

Something’s got to crack.

Following the stage shows, St Mungo’s Luganulk, and St Mungo’s Luganulk2: The Umpire Strikes Back, which were recently filmed for BBC One NI, the duo have created the final part of the St Mungo’s trilogy. St Mungo’s The Ladies will guest star Caroline Curran (Maggie’s Feg Run) and will be directed by Ciaran Nolan (‘Em Two Balloons).

With a rocking soundtrack and a rollicking laugh every 12.5 seconds, this is the nailed-on show to see this summer in Belfast.

Suitable for age: 12+. Contains some bad language, parent guidance required.
