Coming to the Backstage Theatre on Saturday, March 28, ‘Little Gem’, presented by Breda Cashe and written and directed by Elaine Murphy, has been wowing audiences across the country for some time now.

Following a year in the lives of three generations of women, ‘Little Gem’ swept the boards during its sell out run as part of the 2008 Dublin Fringe Festival.

It was also the surprise hit of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that year and the first ever Irish production to receive the prestigious Carol Tambor Award.

Now, the show is back and this heart-warming tale of courage, comedy and romance is ready to woo audiences once again.

The play unfolds in alternating monologues, as three generations of Irish women greet life’s travails with strength, humor and the occasional vodka and Diet Coke or night of abandon on the salsa dance floor.

Starring the inimitable Anita Reeves and Hilda Fay with Kate Gilmore, ‘Little Gem’ comes to Backstage Theatre for one night only on Saturday, March 28.

Tickets are priced at €18/€16 and are available on 043 33 47888, from Farrell & Coy in Longford town or online from www.backstage.ie.
