After much speculation as to what production would kick start Tallaght Theatre's 2014 schedule??


We here at TTG news are delighted to announce Frank McGuinness's highly acclaimed comic thriller

The Factory Girls’ will take to the stage this March!


Our hard working Factory Girls (Sarah Nevin, Aileen Casey, Sarah Talbot, Jennifer Kelly and Shona Guinan)

have been secretly in rehearsals with the TTG production team for the past two months,

And having witnessed rehearsals, we can promise you all, you're in for a treat you will NOT want to miss!


The Factory Girls’ tells the story of five women who stage a lock-in at a shirt factory in Co. Donegal

when faced with the threat of redundancy.

Ellen, Una, Vera, Rosemary and Rebecca are five strong and independent women

who take on the boss and the union.


Described as a truly realistic play filled with humour, charm, fine acting and staging;

these “girls” may never get back their jobs...

but their brief adventure has brought each of them the insight

that will give them the courage to soldier on.


This incredible, uplifiting, heartwarming and at times pure hilarious production

comes to Tallaght Theatre, Greenhills Road, this March...

and is a MUST SEE SHOW!


Tickets are in HIGH demand, and will go exclusively on sale, right here on TallaghtTheatre.com soon...


In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of what's to come from this incredible production!

Last week we released a teaser promo video clip, featuring factory girl Rebecca (Shona Guinan)


Well if that wasn't enough....check out this new EXCLUSIVE teaser trailer,

featuring our next factory girl, "Ellen" (Sarah Nevin)

On a cold, dark November night in 1963,

Four up and coming Liverpudlian singer / songwriters took to the stage of the Adelphi Cinema, Abbey Street in Dublin.


Little did many know then, that this band of lyrical geniuses would go on to rule the world of music and write themselves into the history books...


John, Paul, Ringo and George only ever played one show together in Ireland.

This would become the stuff of legends, as 2,000 eager fans and screaming girls packed the normally humble Adelphi cinema.

A night for those present, that would never happen again...


And although 50 years on, The Beatles performance, lyrics and music, has stood the test of time beautifully...

Sadly however, the Adelphi cinema did not...


In 1995, Following much decline and delapadation, it was decided to demolish the once iconic cinema to make way for a multistory car park complex.


Meanwhile in Tallaght, on the site of the Cuckoo's nest pub, the now firmly established Tallaght Theatre Group where in the process on building our theatre building, to which we live proudly to this date.

As TTG is a voluntary group, funds for the completion of the construction where tight.


With the stage and reception complete, the theatre was in need of professional stacked seating and sound proof double doors...


In an act of pure "chancing one's arm" the then Tallaght Theatre Board of Directors enquired with the contractor of the abandoned Adelphi cinema, if perhaps our humble group could save some of the venue's iconic seating and doors.


The agreement was accepted and with little under an hours grace, an army of TTG volunteers moved in on the once graceful cinema, where the superstars of the silver screen once played and the legends of music history performed, from The Beatles, to Louis Armstrong, Roy Orbison and even the Rolling Stones...


Having saved 125 seats and four sets of double doors from the historic venue, they where fitted to newly completed Tallaght Theatre, which opened to the public later that year.


Now in 2013, 50 years after John, Paul, Ringo and George performed their one and only performance on Irish shores, the very seats and doors from that event are still in use today at the Tallaght Theatre!


So next time you're kicking back to enjoy a TTG show, just remember the incredible events of the past,

Events we will never see again, and that the seat you sit in, played a pivital part in.


"There's more to Tallaght Theatre, thenjust the drama on the stage"
