Well-known faces spotted on the red carpet included Caitriona Perry, Joe Duffy, Marty Whelan and his wife Maria, John McColgan, James Patrice Butler and his mum Fron.

Lead by a brilliant ensemble cast including Richard Fleeshman, Charlie Hardwick, Joe McGann and Frances McNamee, the show features a moving and heartfelt story of love, life and hope.

This personal musical inspired by Sting’s own childhood experiences shows the collective defiance of a community facing the demise of the shipbuilding industry alongside a poignant and moving romantic tale of childhood sweethearts and the adults they grew up to become.
