A Handful of Stars starring Keith Duffy at the Trafalgar Studios
Trafalgar Studio One, 14 Whitehall, London, SW1A 2DY
Boyzone star Keith Duffy makes his West End stage debut in this acclaimed revival of Billy Roche’s A Handful of Stars at the Trafalgar Studios.
Following an acclaimed run at Theatre503, this revival of Billy Roche’s powerful drama A Handful of Stars transfers to the Trafalgar Studios (25 June – 25 July 2014).
Part of Roche’s Wexford Trilogy of plays, A Handful of Stars is directed by Paul Robinson and stars former Boyzone band member and Coronation Street’s Keith Duffy.
In the Irish town of Wexford where ‘shot-gun’ weddings are outnumbered only by random acts of violence the pool hall is Jimmy’s sanctuary. But will such a place embrace his bright ambition or bring it down, burning to the ground?
Cast includes Keith Duffy (Boyzone, Coronation Street), Ciarán Owens (Oh What a Lovely War) and Michael O’Hagan (End of Days), plus Brian Fenton, Colm Gormley, Maureen O’Connell and Michael O’Connor.
