The New Theatre, Wednesday 20th March - Saturday 23rd March
The acclaimed Irish duo of singer/actress Honor Heffernan (Louis Stewart, Neil Jordan's “Angel”), and composer/keyboard player Trevor Knight (Auto Da Fe), present their Cabaret/Speakeasy-style show, “The Whistling Girl”, creating a spellbinding alternative musical extravaganza of song and spoken word based on the lyrics of American wit and feminist icon Dorothy Parker.
The original and unique music composed by Trevor transforms the poems of Parker into songs, using her witty, droll and sometimes heart rending lyrics. Each of the songs create individual tableaux or dream moments from Parker’s psyche, conjuring up images from her tempestuous life of outrageous celebrity, as founding member of the notorious Algonquin set in New York, and as civil rights activist in America and Spain during the Spanish Civil War. With a lineup of highly renowned Irish musicians the atmosphere for a spellbinding evening of music with a theatrical element is brought to life with a live band of Garvan Gallagher bass, Tom Jamieson drums, Ed Deane electric guitar and Bill Blackmore trumpet.
