Following the success of his first sell-out play - The Last Days of the Celtic Tiger, which was acclaimed as ‘a triumph’ and ‘a wickedly funny play’ - Ross O'Carroll Kelly returns to the Olympia this October for a strictly limited four-week run.
Directed by multiple Irish Times Theatre award nominee Jimmy Fay, Between Foxrock and a Hard Place sees the return of Rory Nolan as Ross, Philip O'Sullivan as Charles, Susan FitzGerald as Fionnuala and Lisa Lambe as Sorcha. Après Match's Gary Cooke joins the cast, with rising TV star (Love/Hate) Aoibhinn McGinnity as femme fatale Erika and Laurence Kinlan as Ross's criminally-minded son Ronan.
Ross O'Carroll Kelly was once every boyfriend's nightmare and every girl's wettest dream come true. Now in the midst of a divorce and having piled on the pounds, the closest Rosser can get to a Leinster pitch is taking part in a half-time penalty kick competition (for thirteen-year-olds).
With his old pair splitting up and selling the family home in Foxrock, the house's once €17 million value has been butchered not only by the good old R word but by local council re-zoning plans.
Fresh out of prison, Charles devises a plan involving a lobbyist and a suitcase full of dosh. Enter a masked Gunman, and audiences will be left wondering whether the O'Carroll-Kellys manage to save their beloved postcode or even make it out of Foxrock - ahem, Sandyford East - alive.
