Noggin Theatre Company
Join us for a special night with one of Ireland’s most well-known actresses. An evening of two halves, Mary will first perform one-woman show “Fruitcake” by Alice Barry, before settling down with some of her “here’s one I made earlier” slices of fruitcake for a chat with Alice about her hugely successful acting career, books, buddhism, depression and recent weight loss. With opportunities for the audience to ask questions of their own, it promises to be an intimate and relaxed summer’s evening at the theatre. Fruitcake is a delightful, moving one-woman show. Under the guise of a cookery demonstration, Della Dolan shows us how to make ‘the perfect Fruitcake’ as she divests provoking memories to give a fascinating account of her life on an Irish farm. Divulging a chequered past, involving murder and intrigue but most of all great sacrifice, and love, this funny and poignant show will remind you why life is ultimately rewarding, despite all its ups and downs.
