Rain & Potatoes Information


The Production
Written by McKeever and Montgomery with new comedy partner Anthony Toner, this is a funny, fast-paced, physical romp through the world of all things Irish. The three actors in this show roar through Irish culture from the arrival of the first potato to the return of final emigrant. For Northern for Southern, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, this energetic production covers all things Irish.

"Hilarious, a real crowd pleaser... refreshing, fast-paced and absolutely entertaining" Cultureni.
"Clever...appealing...showcases Nuala's fine reveal any more would be to spoil the they say in these parts, the craic is mighty."
Belfast Telegraph.

The production was launched at the Belfast Grand Opera House Baby Grand featuring Nuala McKeever and two colleagues, in November 2007, and was supported by a full media campaign.   It then completed a short regional tour of Northern Ireland.  The creation of the production and the performances was supported by an on-going interactive show blog for audiences on this website.
