Life isn't easy growing up in the lanes of 1930's Limerick, especially for a young Irish Catholic boy, but McCourt's inspiring story of survival is a testament to the strength and tenacity of the human spirit. A world-renowned best seller that became a major motion picture, Angela's Ashes
has now been adapted into a stage musical that conveys the story's inherent warmth and humour through a score of original songs.Performers Norma Sheahan (Mrs Finucane), Amanda Minihan (Grandma), Bryan Burroughs (Quasimodo), Connor Gormley (Malachy Jnr), Fiona Browne (Nora), Michael Joseph (Billy Heffernan), David O'Meara (Uncle Pat), Mark O'Regan (Mr Griffin), Brigid Shine (Theresa Carmody), Cait Mononey (Ensemble).
