Goodnight Delia

By John Murphy

Goodnight Delia is a new play by John Murphy the creator and Writer of the hit musical ‘Elvis Is My Daddy’ which also opened at the Dolmen Theatre before a successful national tour culminated at the Olympia Theatre

It’s 1971 and following an appearance on ‘The Late Late Show’ the much loved Irish singer Delia Murphy has fallen ill. At night she wanders the hospital corridor and enters a waiting room where she encounters a young child.

As the chance encounter draws on it becomes apparent that Delia is in a special place and there may be a lot more to her young audience than meets the eye.

“Sharon McCoy’s Voice is an absolute revelation”

Sharon McCoy (Good Evening Mr Collins, King Lear, Pride and Prejudice) gives a remarkable performance bringing to life the story of a woman who had her own way of doing things. A feisty, feminine Irish hero who tackled everything from dated conventions to the Nazis and forging an unlikely career as Ireland’s first pop star.

Director Simon Gibney is a double Emmy Award winner (Best Comedy, Best Director) Horrible Histories, The Father Brown mysteries and ‘Nowhere fast’ (RTE)

Don’t miss the incredible story of the unsung hero of Irish song!
