There is a real sense of catering to all tastes at the Dean Crowe Theatre for the rest of this year, with a musical, a classic, and a new comedy all set to run at the Left Bank venue.
First up is international multi-award winning singer Tommy Fleming, who takes to the stage for his first major acting role in a brand new original drama/musical entitled Paddy.
This must-see show - co-written by Tommy Fleming alongside singer/songwriter Gerry Carney and Tommy Marren (writer of the hugely successful It’s the Real McCoy ) tells the story of Patrick Murphy who emigrates to England to start a new life on the building sites of London. With a gripping storyline that is set in both Ireland and England over a 25-year period - to the accompaniment of 13 original songs - Paddy promises to be a unique night of stunning drama and spectacular music. It will show at 8pm on Friday, November 20.
The Matchmaker based on the novella Letters of a County Matchmaker by John B. Keane, one of Ireland’s most celebrated writers, will be staged at the Dean Crowe Theatre on Wednesday, November 25 at 8pm.

Irish actor and comedian Jon Kenny, who was part of the Irish comic duo d’Unbelievables with Pat Shortt, joins Mary to complete the cast. Kenny is also best known outside Ireland for appearing in the Channel 4 sitcom Father Ted. Together they play a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthy dramatic comedy.
The world premiere of Stuart Thomas’ You Don’t Bring Me Flowers will take place on Friday, December 4, and also run on Saturday, December 5 both shows at 8pm.
