The Secrets Of Primrose Square Comes To The Lime Tree Theatre

An instant hit when published in 2018, The Secrets of Primrose Square by Claudia Carroll remained in the charts for 14 weeks.

During Covid-19 lockdown, it was the number one downloaded book, both in Ireland and the UK.

In August and September 2020, the audio book reached no. 1 in the public library download charts in Ireland, followed in the no. 2 spot by Normal People.

It was announced today that after a delay due to the impact of Covid 19, the stage production based on the book of the same name will at long last premiere next month.

Directed by Mark Lambert, this stage adaptation is written by Claudia Carroll herself.

This premiere production will feature Megan McDonnell (Elaine in Normal People & The Playboy of the Western World Lyric Theatre & DTF), Clelia Murphy (Fair City, The Sound of Music, Bord Gais Energy Theatre & UK tour) and Marion O’Dwyer (one of Ireland’s most renowned actors of stage and screen).

Audiences will have the chance to experience the world of Primrose Square from the safety of their homes.

Partnering with venues across the country Pat Moylan has curated a simultaneous streaming event for this unmissable production which will be staged at Draiocht Arts Centre, and available to stream from Draiocht and our partner venues Lime Tree Theatre, The Watergate, The Civic and Town Hall Theatre.

Simply check out the dates at here.

Choose the date you would like and venue you love, go to the corresponding venue website and purchase your ticket to stream on that date at home.

A visit to Primrose Square provides us with tears, laughter and gossip in equal proportions.

At number eighteen, there’s Susan - an ordinary woman dealing with the unimaginable, while her teenage daughter Melissa desperately tries to keep the family together.

Next door we have sixty-something Jayne, who’s found love again - or has she?

Creative team:

Director Mark Lambert, Set/Costume Designer Kate Moylan, Lighting Designer Suzie Cummins and Sound Designer Fiona Sheil.

This project has been part-funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht Sport and Media from the Live Performance Support Scheme.

Tickets priced €15.

Stream at home on Wednesday July 7th, Thursday July 8th, Friday July 9th and Saturday July 10th.
