In date order, the second of four picks among Lime Tree Theatre’s A/W 2019 season.

Are you into ‘The Young Offenders’? Its craziest character Billy Murphy is played with brio by Shane Casey, who has written and performs in this theatrical two-hander, ‘Wet Paint’.

The laughter trickles to Lime Tree Theatre as part of the show’s 2019 premier tour.

Pat Talbot Productions in Cork is synonymous with Everyman Theatre firsts, and works inspired by Ireland’s writers and agents of the State.

Pat Talbot directs and ‘Wet Paint’ opens here Thursday September 28. Huge public interest is expressed on the back of Casey’s following.

“This is comedy really, and a drama. It’s pure Irish,” Gill Fenton, marketing, comments, “centred on a day in the lives of two painter-decorators.”

Look back to the intense, monied years of The Celtic Tiger for an idea of what these bold cubs are up to. Lime Tree Theatre welcomes the laughs and challenges for one night only on Wet Paint’s national tour.
