Dublin Beatles Festival
The Workman's Club, Saturday 3rd November 2018
BEATLES DAY AT THE WORKMAN’S CLUB
2.00pm – WHEN THE BEATLES CAME TO DUBLIN – €8
This is a short play about The Beatles coming to Dublin on Thursday, November 7th, 1963, as told from the perspective of Catherine Hansard – the mother of Glen Hansard.
SPOILER ALERT (of sorts) – Catherine and some of her friends managed to break into the Adelphi Cinema on Middle Abbey Street and hide in the dressing room used by The Beatles.
The play will be performed by Joan Fleetwood. It is written and directed by Stephen Kennedy.
The show will also include a set of songs from The Beatles played live by Enda Reilly. Stephen Kennedy’s Beatles plays have been broadcast on the BBC, RTE and Radio Merseyside – and they have been staged in Dublin, Belfast, Liverpool, Dundee, Berlin and Washington DC.
November 2018 will be the 55th anniversary of The Beatles coming to Dublin – and this play is the perfect way to celebrate that great band’s one and only visit to our city.
