Presented by The Everyman and Rosa Productions in Association with Cork Midsummer Festival
The Everyman and Rosa Productions are proud to present the world premiere of Evening Train, a new musical, as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2019.
Celebrated Cork singer-songwriter Mick Flannery, writer Ursula Rani Sarma and director Annabelle Comyn transform Flannery’s acclaimed concept album, Evening Train, into a stunning new musical.
West Cork: Grace dreams of a new life far away from here as she waits for Luther. He’s late. Again. Elsewhere in town, bartender Frank surrenders yet another paycheck to cover his reckless brother’s gambling debts. Luther promises Grace that by Christmas, he’ll have made enough money to get them out of here. Before long, a high stakes game is underway, in which everyone is a player, whether they like it or not.
The stage adaptation of Evening Train is woven through with the incredible music and lyrics of Mick Flannery. With a phenomenal cast of Irish actors and a live band that includes composer Mick Flannery, Evening Train will be an unmissable night at the theatre.
