"Broken Promise Land" comes to Tullamore

In a taste of what’s to come once Tullamore has its own arts centre, Tullamore Community Arts Centre and Foundation 13 present “Broken Promise Land” on October 10, 11 and 12 next.

A Fishamble/Rough Magic production direct from the Galway Theatre Festival, “Broken Promise Land” will be staged in the Fridge Venue on O’Connor Square.

“Broken Promise Land” focuses on Stefica. Sick of life in her war-torn country and guided by MTV Hits and Hollywood sitcoms, Stefica takes on a new name and embarks on a quest for an American education but ends up in a Dublin lap dancing club.

During the show she teaches the audience the tricks of the trade and shares secrets she can’t tell anyone else.

Based on performer Mirjana Rendulic’s own experiences, and directed by Aoife Spillane-Hinks, “Broken Promise Land” dispels easy preconceptions about exotic dancers and the immigrant experience.

Tickets for “Broken Promise Land” are available for €10 and €12 through Midland Books on 057 9321797.
