From the author of “Packie’s Wake’.
The year is 1961, St. Valentine’s Night and for two glorious hours of theatre “One Night Stands” will transport you to a dancehall on the West Coast of Ireland.
Derry based showband, The Barracudas, are playing their first gig in a syndicated ballroom. There has never been a more important night for the band and their innovative leader ‘Flash Harry’ McCann. For a band on the cusp of greatness this is a really big deal as if they can do ‘it’ tonight they can do ‘it’ anywhere with guaranteed bookings and celebrity status within reach.
By dressing in their loudest suits and playing the latest ‘grooves, man’ they’re making it big on the showband scene, the punters can’t get enough, but neither can the greedy dancehall owners who form a syndicate to control and maximise their profits.
While the dancehalls are often described as the ‘ballrooms of romance’, on this, the most romantic night of the year, the backstage green room will be anything but love and roses.
One Night Stands is the superb and hilarious story of how one band just wanted to play music.
Make sure you bring your loudest laugh, dancing shoes, singing voice and prepare to jive with the unique Showband sound of the Barracudas.
