You’re reading cabaret and you’re probably thinking frilly dresses and funny dancing, right?
Well, this is not that. The Iron Annie Cabaret is an intense dose of craic, straight to the veins. It’s the celebration through theatre and live music of a story that doesn’t pull any punches.
Based on Luke Cassidy’s critically acclaimed debut novelIron Annie, it tells the story of Aoife, a major figure in Dundalk’s small-town underworld, and her fatal attraction to Annie, a magnetic and elusive force that barged into her life.
Think Reservoir Dogs meets Thelma and Louise meets the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
This production features performances by Eleanor McLoughlin as Aoife, accompanied by musical performances by folk duo the Dandelion Few and newly formed rock band False Slag. Directed by Peter Moreton, artistic director of the Applecart Arts Centre (London), it is produced by Luke Cassidy.
The production is made possible with the support of the Arts Council of Ireland and Louth County Council.
