Little Gem by Elaine Murphy

Chester Little Theatre bring their latest production to Davenham Theatre for a short run. Catherine Millar, Emma Reilly and Davenham’s own Maggie Innes are the three women (daughter, mother, grandmother) in this story of love, sex, birth, death and salsa classes.

Amber, happy go lucky, fresh out of school, high on life, sambucas and boyfriend Paul.  That is until the ‘indigestion’ starts

Lorraine, her mother, struggling to cope and seeing a ‘head doctor’.   She’s told to ‘do one nice thing for herself each week’.   Time to sign up for salsa classes…  who knows where that may lead to?

And Kay, the grandmother, on the wrong side of sixty and looking after her sick husband Gem, is finding life frustrating in more ways than one.   A chance encounter in Lidl leads her in an unexpected direction… And if that wasn’t enough, Little Gem makes his presence felt and life will never be the same again.

A remarkable story of sorrow, precarious joy and inappropriate laughter. Indeed, this is a little gem of a play: vivid, funny and touching. The story of a year in the life of one Dublin family.

Chester Little Theatre’s production comes to Davenham on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th April. Directed by John Turner.

Doors & Bar Open 7pm.

Show at 7:30pm
