'47 Roses' Returns to the Viking Theatre

05 Jul 2012

Peter Sheridan's '47 Roses' is back by popular demand at the Viking Theatre from Monday 9th - Saturday 21st of July. 

Peter Sheridan conjures up the voices, sights and songs of his 1960’s childhood in Dublin, in a powerful coming-of-age story, peopled with deliciously eccentric characters and wonderfully bizarre incidents.

By turns, brilliantly funny and intensely moving, this remarkable performance packs a considerable punch – a cultural gem.

"Peter Sheridan writes at the crossroads where hilarity and heartbreak, tenderness and savagery meet.  The people who live there are often cruel, often magnificent, and always, always human.  He captures them perfectly." Roddy Doyle

"A story so vivid, affecting and lingering that it almost feels like our own." IRISH TIMES

"He’s funny, he’s self-deprecating, he’s street-wise, he’s naughty... pure theatre"


Book now by calling Laura or Andy on 087-112-9970, tickets cost €10 and can also be purchased at the door. Show starts 8pm nightly.

Please note there will be no performance on Thursday 12th of July.
