On the 55th anniversary of the controversial release and success of Seven Drunken Nights by Irish Folk Legends, The Dubliners, a one of a kind theatre show named after the famous song will bring upbeat Irish craic, music and humour to Millfield Theatre on 9 APRIL.
Seven Drunken Nights – The story of The Dubliners,boasts Irelands finest musicians, telling the story of The Dubliners career spanning over 50 years. The show will take you on a musical journey through time, transporting you back to O’Donoghues pub, TV appearances and famous scenes in their 50 year career, and have you clapping and dancing in the isles.
The debut tour, which opens in Workington on March 10th and closes at the Hall for Cornwall in Truro on April 14th, takes in 23 venues in key towns and cities across the UK.
Creator and co-producer Ged Graham says:
“There is still a love and respect for the music of The Dubliners. The music may somehow have been diluted over the years but what we wanted to do with the show is bring it back to life and put it in the context of it's time. When The Dubliners name was retired in 2012, it sowed the seed for creating a show that would tell the story of The Dubliners, and keep their music alive.”
“Seven Drunken Nights is very much an audience participation show. People can expect to hear all of the classic songs of The Dubliners and to feel the energy of the lads at the peak of their performing careers. It will be a guaranteed great night of music, song and craic!” adds Ged.
“The show includes some of Irelands most talented musicians, singers and storytellers who bring you a feel good show that will have you singing along from the opening number right through to the last rousing chorus.”
