The Humours of Bandon
Written & Performed by: Margaret McAuliffe

This is Margaret’s second time performing at the Fit-up Festival following Jezebel (Rough Magic) in 2014. Prior to ‘The Humours of Bandon’ she was in Anna Karenina (Abbey Theatre).
From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish Dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up in drawing rooms and Riverdance swells a national pride, but the public aren’t privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium. Fishamble’s The Humours of Bandon is a coming of age story, full of heart, humour and wisdom, for anyone who had a childhood passion that threatened to overwhelm their life.
‘terrific one woman show…both writing and performance are by turns sharp, charming and hilarious…all round, a champion turn.’– The Irish Times
