IN THE criminal underworld of Dundalk, two women are determined to offload ten kilos of cocaine swiped from a rival.
This is The Iron Annie Cabaret, the musical theatre adaptation of Luke Cassidy's critically acclaimed debut novel Iron Annie, which is coming to the Town Hall Theatre on Monday November 8 at 8pm.
Cassidy’s novel has been called “a queer underworld Thelma and Louise with better jokes and just as much chance of a happy ending” by The Irish Times, and the author is excited to be bringing this stage adaptation on tour.
The Iron Annie Cabaret centres on Aoife, and her doomed relationship with the beautiful but capricious Annie, their story told through the stage, original live music, and literature.

“I am really excited to bring my characters to life in this one-of-a-kind live stage show, especially when live events have been absent for so long,” he says. “I think audiences are in for a real treat. Think Reservoir Dogs meets Thelma and Louise and the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and that’s just for starters!”
Produced by Luke Cassidy, The Iron Annie Cabaret stars actor Eleanor McLoughlin (as Aoife, pictured above ), and is directed by Peter Moreton. Music is from folk duo The Dandelion Few and punk band False Slag.
