Murder at Shandy Hall – The Musical
Fundraiser for Macroom Senior Citizens – Sullane Haven Project
Starring Irish actor Patrick Bergin
Having sold out on its debut in Cork Opera House, Ireland’s first murder mystery musical starring Patrick Bergin returns in February 2017. A powerful and original period drama based on a true crime in Victorian County Cork in 1887 and a cast of real characters including a cruel killer; a beautiful governess; a betrayed wife; a canny and clever detective, a brilliant pathologist and a notorious hangman. This production is written and directed by Michael Sheridan based on his best -selling book with music and lyrics by Cork men Alan Kiely and Kevin Connolly.
COUNTY CORK JUNE 1887
Aagainst the tranquil rural backdrop – the sleepy County Cork village of Dripsey near Coachford – a sensational Victorian murder is played out with a potent mix of love, lust, betrayal and ultimately naked hatred. The entry of a young and beautiful governess into Shandy Hall, the home of retired British Army surgeon Dr Philip Cross acts as a catalyst for an act of horror that prompts suspicion, an exhumation and a charged courtroom drama that grabs newspaper headlines all over the world.
