After a day spent loading toolboxes into a touring van, the NEWLY AWARD WINNING (capitals to denote the excitement that still permeates such a prefix) Talking Shop are getting ready and set (or should that be getting the set ready?) for a whirlwind weekend trip to Galway. Fresh from a fantastic Fringe which saw Tradesmen accumulate the inaugural Lir Revival Award, Fishamble New Writing award and a Spirit of the Fringe nomination, we are very excited to be embarking on first ever collaboration with Galway Theatre Festival.
We are running for 2 NIGHTS ONLY (Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th and 8.30pm) at the Town Hall Theatre (Studio Space) and would really very much like it if you could join us.
