Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival are delighted to announce details about the world premiere Breakfast on Pluto, a dazzling new musical based on the novel by Patrick McCabe.
The rural Irish border town of Tyreelin at the height of the Troubles is no place for a wonderfully unpredictable child like Patrick/Pussy Braden, illegitimate offspring of an errant priest and a long-gone local girl.
Dismayed by small-town bigotry, religious repression and the IRA’s lack of fashion sense, Pussy ditches watchtowers and checkpoints for the faraway galaxy of 1970s London in search of a long-lost mother and a technicolour new life.
Des Kennedy directs a sensational Irish cast, with Fra Fee leading as Patrick/Pussy, in a musical of self-discovery that all fabulously attired, highly-strung foundling glam-things will love. Fra is joined by David Ganly, Kate Gilmore, Rickie O’Neill and Niamh Perry, with further casting to be announced soon.
