In the mid-1970s a group of young men left their homes in the West of Ireland, took the boat out of Dublin Bay and sailed across the sea to England in the hope of making their fortunes and returning home.
Twenty-five years later only one, Jackie Flavin, makes it home, but does so in a coffin. The Kings of the Kilburn High Road takes place on the day the winners and losers of the group meet up to drink to Jackie Flavin’s memory and looks at their lives, lost dreams and their place in the new Ireland.
A wonderful play full of humour and human sadness. One not to be missed!
The Kings Of The Kilburn High Road runs at the Town Hall Theatre on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 March. Tickets €18/€15 from the Town Hall Theatre or www.tht.ie
