Lunchtime Theatre: Paddy goes to Petra 

Rural Ireland meets the Middle East in a plot which follows middle aged farmer Paddy, whose lust for life has long vanished. A trip to the ancient city of Petra in Jordan encourages him to feel a fresh wonder for the world, develop new friendships and begin an exciting love affair…with himself.
Pretending to lose his passport so he can stay longer in Petra, Paddy begins a journey of recovery and renewed enthusiasm for living. How long until responsibilities of old take hold of him again, however? A play about survival, strength and carrying on.

Written and Directed by Áine Ryan
Performed by Brendan Dunlea
Music by Eyal Arad and Cait Ní Riain

Complimentary Middle Eastern coffee/tea, baklava and dates will be served from 1.00pm in the foyer and the play will commence at 2.00pm.
