Production Details

Yes, for those of you who have been weeping into your cornflakes and desperately missing the antics of FIREBALL, FELIX and GERRY COURTNEY, your prayers have been answered. And for those of you who have never seen it before, you are about to arrive in comedy theatre heaven.

Written by the ever-popular Martin Lynch and comedy duo Grimes & McKee – who also star in the show – The History Of The Troubles (accordin’ to my Da) has achieved truly legendary status. The play takes you through Gerry Courtney’s struggle to retain his sanity against the chaos in this frenetic, hilarious laugh-a-minute comedy covering the Northern Irish troubles.

Seen by over 100,000 people in Dublin, London, and all points in between, the show has played to full houses at the Grand Opera House an incredible 8 times, the last being 10 years ago.

A double-anniversary production that only an eejit would miss!
