The All Star Wars – the new GAA comedy which has been taking audiences by storm since it first premiered at Cork Opera House last April, will arrive at the Olympia Theatre – Dublin in February 2012 for one week only!
The smash hit GAA comedy co-written by writer/director Bryan Flynn and writer/actor Kevin McCormack parodies the world of club and county hurling and has already been a huge hit on tour in Cork, Clare and Waterford.
Many famous faces from the GAA world afforded standing ovations nightly for this very funny production which is based on Ireland’s obsession with the ancient game of hurling and no doubt tickets will be at a premium when it plays at the Olympia from 7th to 12th February 2012.
Soccer fans were gifted with ‘I Keano’ and rugby fans with ‘Alone it Stands’; both fantastic productions. But now comes the show all fans of the GAA have been waiting for; a production which honours and celebrates the game of hurling through a feast of comedy and music. All of the famous characters from the modern game (both on and off the field) are parodied in this two-hour comedy show.
The ALL STAR Wars tells the story of a 42 year old Junior B hurler ‘Hugh Cullen’, who, mistakingly believed to be a blood relation of Cuchulainn, is whisked off on a journey by a wise sage called Obi Wan Camogie to save the future of hurling from the might of the indomitable King Henry of the Shefflin Order. What follows is two hours of hilarious situation comedy during which we are introduced to numerous recognizable characters.
Musical arrangements have been produced by acclaimed producer David Hayes and the production also features audio visual sequences along with a twenty strong cast. When the producers decided to use some match commentary as a narrative devise during the show, the greatest broadcaster in the history of the GAA was approached. What followed was an exhilarating and inspiring day in the recording studio with legend Michael O Mhuircheartaigh. His commentary is a huge endorsement for the show; as witty as it is powerful. Other appearances are made in the production by Sunday Game pundit Tomas Mulcahy and RTE host Marty Morrissey.
The ALL STAR Wars will be the perfect tonic for audiences looking for an evening of top class comedy entertainment and will appeal to both fans of comedy, theatre and sport.
