With a few daytime hours to while away, I decided to attend a Saturday staging of "To Hell in a Handbag" and am very glad I did. This particular two-actor play was witty and wonderfully delivered. Furthermore, the lunchtime concept is great. A central location,...More

My family attended two different Peter Sheridan shows in August 2016 - 47 Roses and Are you having a Laugh?. Both show were very good indeed. Both shows need to be brought out to wider audiences in the Irish provinces soon.
