The year is 2029 and Ireland is in the midst of an economic boom. Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is about to turn 50 – and life could not be better for him. His wife, Sorcha, is the Taoiseach. His triplet boys are the backbone of the Castlerock College Junior Cup team. And he still does alright with the ladies. But Ross’s daughter, Honor, is about to get married and that’s when the trouble really begins.

Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is the star of the much-loved, best-selling series of books, and a weekly column in the Irish Times, by the award-winning writer, Paul Howard. Rory Nolan’s masterful performance as Ross has been drawing standing ovations since he first brought Ross to life on stage 14 years ago. Now you can applaud him from every room in your house!
