Thursday June 2 – Saturday June 4 – 8pm
In celebration of the recent unprecedented and historic victory in the European Court of Rights by the former Waterford crystal workers to secure their pension entitlements, All of a Sudden Theatre Company is proud to announce the return of The Glass by Paul Barry.
A hilarious and poignant romp, The Glass tells the story of a motley crew of workers, and their shenanigans inside and indeed outside the hallowed walls of one of the most famous factories in the world, Waterford Crystal.
Written and directed by Paul Barry and starring some of Waterford’s finest actors, the play had two sold-out runs in 2011 at Garter Lane and the Theatre Royal. It received rave reviews from critics in the local newspapers and went on to win several awards in the end of year reviews including Best Play, Best New Play and Best Set. With a strictly limited run, tickets will again set to sell like hot cakes, particularly as they include a complimentary pre-show drink. Contains strong language.
Tickets €20 – Booking (+353 (0) 51 855038 )
