Wild in the Country
New three-act play premiering March 4th, 2020 …
When it is suggested to Rose that her favourite superstar, Elvis Presley, is coming to town to perform in the local hall, she gives it her all to get ready for this great event. But when her plans to meet and seduce Elvis get interrupted by her Mozart loving husband, a washing machine, a local election, and Mother time herself, she decides she must take matters into her own hands if she is to fulfil her destiny.
Inspired by the Richard Thompson song ‘From Galway to Graceland’, this razor-sharp tragic-comedy is set in August, 1977, in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, Ireland.
