Jim and Gary have a double life.
They are actors by day…
but by night they are…
The Water Boys for Carrickshock hurling team.
As kids they dreamed of raising an All-Ireland hurling trophy in Croke Park.
Their bodies may have prevented them from playing for their club, but nothing will stop these striped crusaders from being part of their team.
The Water Boys is an extraordinary, real-life story about learning to walk, learning to fall and learning to follow your dreams.

Equinox Theatre Company is part of KCAT Arts Centre in Co. Kilkenny.
The Water Boys has been developed with support from Arts & Disability Ireland; Kilkenny Arts Office; Visual, Carlow and The Arts Council of Ireland and is performed at RUA Red with support from Tallaght Community Arts Cultural Competencies Programme.
