Ireland 1922 and the Ulster Boundary Commission has drawn the new border straight through the small town of Puckoon. With the church separated from its own graveyard and drink now thirty percent cheaper in one corner of the pub, life in the newly divided village will never be the same again. Based on the book by Spike Milligan, this comic masterpiece is an irreverent and hilarious story which takes the mick, celebrates the absurd, and paints a picture of a simple life that borders on the ridiculous.
Staring an all-star cast; Paddy Jenkins (Game of Thrones, Dancing Shoes; the George Best Story), Patrick J O’ Reilly (Gulliver, Cabaret), Keith Singleton (Hatch, One Sandwich Short of a Genius), John O Mahony (As you like it, Mrs Browns Boys, Fr.Ted), Giles Stoakley (A midsummer night’s Dream, A tale of two Cities) and Paul Alexander Boyd (multi award-nominated writer, composer, and theatre director), Puckoon is set to have audiences across the UK screaming with laughter at its Goonish blend of theatrical anarchy, musical wit, and impossible plot.
