We are delighted to see Sligo actress Niamh McGrath's GomBean head off on tour around the country! GomBean's premiere was at the Hawk's Well in September 2022. This comedy is set in a sleepy town in Sligo. Delivering a lockdown dose of caffeine fueled fun GomBean opens a lid on Grace O’ Malley’s new coffee van venture, but a blast from her past - wrestling rival Ruby Stephens arrives in town, decades after making it big.
Her arrival literally turns Grace’s world upside down, as she contends to win back her title which she lost at the U18’s Community Games in ’94. Some dreams can’t be stomped on!
This show was researched in 2021 thanks to a grant from Bank of Ireland Begin Together and was made in 2022.
