LAMBO at the Viking Theatre
In 1987 Gerry Ryan killed a lamb. Kind of, maybe...
LAMBO is the acclaimed play that tells the story of a national scandal - the supposed murder of sheep by none other than Gerry Ryan. With the media watching his every move, Gerry must find a way to clear his name and save his career.
The incredible Michael Ford-Fitzgerald takes to the stage as Gerry Ryan, bringing incredible vigour and gusto to his character. The play examines the reality of life in the media spotlight, and questions the issues of notions of truth and integrity.
Hugh Travers' play is definitely not one to be missed. Book early because tickets are selling out quickly! Tickets cost €12 and can be booked by calling 087 1129970. There will be 10 performances, from 23rd June 2014 - 3rd July 2014.

Hugh Travers enjoyable and artful new play for Underscore_Productions takes what might have been a trivial footnote in Irish broadcasting and makes it something meaningful - The Irish Times (****)
Travers’ script is light hearted, without avoiding how this blurring of lines between entertainment and reality has impacted on national broadcasting today. It’s respectful without being reverent – Irish Theatre Magazine (****)
I went in rather warily and by the end I just remembered how much I missed him still. It was a lovely tribute to Gerry and I think he would of really enjoyed it – RTÉ ARENA
