The Roaring Banshees – A ripping yarn about a gang of Irish rebels taking on the Chicago underworld.
Chicago, 1923. After a failed assassination attempt on Eamon de Valera, a rogue Cumann na mBan unit flee across the Atlantic to escape the law. With Prohibition in full swing, they earn their keep by making bootleg poitín and selling it on to the Chicago mob. But it's not long before a gang war breaks out with them caught in the middle, and the lethal skills they honed back home hunting Black and Tans are taken to the bullet-strewn streets of the Windy City. From Devious Theatre, the Kilkenny company behind the 2016 smash hit The Hellfire Squad, comes the second blood-soaked, blackly-comic installment of the Ripping Yarn Trilogy.
