“Catherine & Katharine; Sisters Wee Bit Irish” starring actress Kate Brighton and fiddle player Cathy Francetti, brings to Harbison Theater an evening of Irish music, dance and storytelling on Thursday, March 7th at 7:30pm. With a fiddle and Ball Mason Jars as their instruments of choice, Sisters Wee Bit Irish weaves this theatrical production with tales of growing up in the small Irish village, Ballymore Eustace, in the 1950’s and 60’s when the threats of a sister entering the nunnery collided with the Beatles. A fast paced night of reels and jigs, laughter and masterfully dramatic story telling.
Catherine & Katharine; Sisters Wee Bit Irish explores growing up in a large Catholic family around the time of the first Beatles concert in Dublin, November 1963. Life changes as the lovely motorcycle boy, Hugh Darcy motors into Catherine’s life. The cast is filled out by two internationally-ranked Irish Step Dancers, Grace Condon and Carolina Murray playing the younger O'Sullivan sisters.
