Skerries Theatre Group set to open 2017 with 'Little Gem'

Skerries Theatre Group's first production of the year gets underway this week when it raises the curtain on 'Little Gem' by Elaine Murphy.

It is being performed in the Little Theatre from Wednesday to Saturday (February 8 to 18) at 8.15pm. Tickets cost €12/€10 from Skerries Bookshop.

Three generations of women tell their story of one extraordinary year. Amber has fierce bad indigestion and the Sambucas aren't getting rid of it.

Lorraine attacks a customer at work and her boss wants her to see a psychiatrist. Kay's got an itch that Gem can't scratch (but maybe Kermit can). Paul is just using Amber until he can get to Australia.

The Hairy Man fancies Lorraine but fails to rise to the occasion, and Gem doesn't like the neighbours coming in to 'mind' him. And if all that wasn't bad enough, Little Gem makes his presence felt and, well, life is never the same again. Be prepared to be enthralled and entertained in this revealing, poignant and hilarious play.

Starring three of Skerries Theatre Group's finest: Lizzy Noone, Suzanne Healy and Rita McCarthy. Director is Martine Healy and Producer is Mary Shannon.
