Annie is a 16-year-old Irish Dancer from Dublin and we meet her on the eve of the biggest competition of her life, the Irish Open Championships 1999. She charts us through the various successes and disappointments of her Irish Dancing life. We share her mind-numbing commitment and burning desire to win the coveted Irish Open title. Will she win and, if so, in what way? From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish Dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up in drawing rooms and Riverdance swells a sense of national pride, but the public aren’t privy to the blood, sweat and tears that pave the way to first place on the podium…

A coming-of-age story, The Humours of Bandon is an award-winning play, full of heart, humour and wisdom, for anyone who had a childhood passion that threatened to overwhelm their life!

"…a delight… Margaret Mc Auliffe is a star… sit back and enjoy this emotional rollercoaster ride." (**** Broadway Baby)

"terrific one-woman show… by turns sharp, charming and hilarious… All round, a champion turn." (**** The Irish Times)
