Lorraine Halpin plays Lorraine, who attacks a customer at work and is now seeing a 'head doctor'.

Daphne Linders is Kay, Lorraine's mum, whose ailing husband Gem doesn't like the neighbours coming in to 'mind' him. She's missing more than his conversation.

Then 'Little Gem' makes his presence felt and life is never the same again.

Lorraine's daughter Amber (Kate Bauer), is happy-go-lucky until the 'indigestion'starts!

Each tells her own story in this life-affirming drama which won the Fishamble New writing, BBC Drama, Best of Edinburgh, and Irish Playwrights and Screenwriters Guild Best Theatre Script awards, and has delighted audiences in London, the Abbey, and many other venues.

With strong language and adult humour throughout, 'Little Gem' runs from November 13 to 17 at 8.30pm at Donabate Community College.

Tickets €10 at the door. Phone 086 0712530 for more information.
