The hit comedy, directed by Caroline FitzGerald comes to The Moat for one night only on Saturday 28th October.

Claudia Carroll     (Fair City)
Rose Henderson    (Fair City, Father Ted)
Isobel Mahon       (Glenroe, The Clinic)
Maria McDermottroe (Glenroe, Killinaskully)
Karen Egan (The Nualas, Charlatanne)
Selma Mae Isobel Mahon seems to have the perfect life, beautiful home, children, architect husband.. but when Carmel Maria McDermottroe, her social climbing mother arrives to help her to organise a party to launch her new state-of–the–art extension, it soon becomes clear that all is not as it seems.

The truth is Selma Mae has just been released from a spell at a psychiatric hospital (a fact that her mother is anxious to hide), her husband has just walked out and she's asking the question "Who's life is it anyway?"

As the motley collection of guests arrive, glamorous neighbour Chloe, Claudia Carroll, tough-talking sister Maeve Karen Egan and the eccentric Bernie, Rose Henderson, disaster ensues and the perfect facade, not to mention the extension itself, begins to crumble...

BOOM? is a comedy set at the height of the mythical economic boom, the people who live the fantasy and those who fall through the cracks, hopefully into something more real and more sustaining.

This is a play for anyone who ever had a bad hair day, may never own a helicopter and knows the difference between an abstract sculpture and a bicycle helmet.
