An evening of satirical songs based on the trials tribulations and joys of growing older. Song titles include "Growing old is not for Wimps"..... The Libido Blues"....... The Perils of Babysitting.... The Gym Rabbit...... Senior Moments etc. The show runs forapprox 70 minutes with an interval. This show was written by and features Lua McIlraith. A BIT ABOUT (75 year old) ME………. Lua has been acting, singing, directing, writing devising, alongside all Front of House and Backstage duties for what seems like a lifetime. Hailing originally from Athlone where her teacher parents were active members of Athlone Musical Society and Athlone Little Theatre she absorbed stagecraft from being brought along to rehearsals from age 4. This experience stood her in good stead during school years and later in Dublin where she was part of the buzzing Musical Societies scene in the Seventies and Eighties playing leading roles for many of those Societies. Three stints of living abroad saw her moving towards Drama as this was less expensive to produce in third world countries and on her return home became involved with both the Drama Groups in Dalkey Co Dublin. She set up her own group in Dun Laoghaire, The Lilliput Players” with a remit to provide small cast Plays and Musicals for the area.
