In Search of the Spring

Phoenix Theatre Co

Gilbert has a little problem. More precisely, an itch. An itch in a place where no man wants to have an itch. So, he does what any man would do in this situation. He sets off deep into the forest to meet with Gypsy Maggie, The Wise Woman of the Wood, and ask her for a cure. Maggie dispatches Gilbert on an intrepid quest into the “deepest, darkest, most positively spookifying part of the whole forest” where a cure, she claims, awaits him. Along the way, Gilbert meets Bianca – a musical genius who enjoys a drink (or twelve) – and Dido – a bride-to-be who’s big day is beginning to look a lot less than perfect. Believing that Maggie’s fabled cure just might be the answer to each of their problems, the three form a rag-tag alliance and face the perils of the forest together.

Phoenix Theatre Co return to Limerick Fringe after their hugely successful sell out show “John In Heels”. In Search Of The Spring is a fairytale – but with more sex and swearing. Classic story-telling, dynamic theatricality and bawdy humour combine to deliver a few home truths on sex, love and work.
