Butterflies at the Big House

by Jimmy Kerr

A special read-through of a new show by Jimmy Kerr (Ardnaglass on the Air)

Dolly Turner is a wild woman. One of life's great survivors. As a young girl, she dreamt of living in the big house, with the handsome husband and lovely children. Dolly had a vision. Falling for Danny, with his footballer's legs, Marlon Brando lips and a big farm to inherit, Dolly's dreams were off to a good start. What with her canny business smarts, her strong work ethic and her entrée into the world of special Chinese takeaways bankrolling her plans, the future was looking hopeful. Dolly's dreams of becoming lady of the manor were just within reach — until the universe decided differently. Tending her marigolds and delphiniums, she shares her story of dreams, love, loss and hope with us, starring Jo Donnelly, (Margaret-Mary-Rose, Ardnaglass on the Air).

Price includes a glass of bubbly on arrival!
