Theatre: Jimmy’s Hall at the Lime Tree Theatre (Irish Sign Language interpreted performance)
21 Jul 2018 (Past)
Bursting with music, dance, poetry and song, the must-see feel-good show of last summer returns.
Jimmy’s Hall tells the true story of Leitrim farmer Jimmy Gralton, the only Irishman deported from his own country. His crime was to build a dance hall where he encouraged the local community to learn, to argue and to dream, but above all to dance and have fun. As the hall grew in popularity its free-spirited reputation brought it to the attention of the church and politicians who forced Jimmy to flee and the hall to close.
A decade later, at the height of the Depression, Jimmy returns from the US. The hall stands abandoned but as Jimmy sees the poverty and growing oppression in the village, the leader and activist within him is stirred. He decides to reopen the hall, and so takes on the established authorities of the church and the government.
Running time: 2 hours
Please note there will be haze, loud noises and pyrotechnics used in show.
Irish Sign Language interpreted performance: Saturday 21 July, 2:30pm
