SAINT CATHERINE'S DAY - A Play, A Peh and A Pint

Dundee Rep are teaming up with Oran Mor, Glasgow's groundbreaking theatre venue to produce a  play written by Michael Marra and featured as part of their A Play, A Peh and A Pint season. Michael has a small role playing piano and providing some vocals and narration.

"Saint Catherine's Day tells the story of different generations of romantic
Irish balladeers and how they view their occupation. Glib, shallow
professionalism has replaced their originally noble purpose as singers. A
remarkable thing happens during a moment of musical truth which throws them all
into confusion.

`'Never underestimate the power of cheap music.'' Noel Coward
