Kildare Drmam Festival 2022 - 'Little Gem'

April 8, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


About the Play

Three generations of Dublin women tell their stories of a special year in their lives.

Happy-go-lucky Amber, fresh out of school, is high on life, double Sambucas and boyfriend Paul – that is until the ‘indigestion’ starts.

Her mother Lorraine attacks a customer at work and now she’s seeing a ‘head doctor’.  She’s told to do one nice thing for herself each week – time to sign up for Salsa Classes.

Nanny Kay, meanwhile, is finding life on the wrong side of sixty frustrating. Ailing husband Gem doesn’t like the neighbours coming in to mind him and she’s missing more than just his conversation!

And if all that wasn’t bad enough, little Gem make his presence felt and life is never the same again.
