  • Synopsis

    Based on a tapestry of true events, Rosie and Starwars is a humorous thriller of two communities colliding. Transposed to County Clare, during the county's run up to winning the All-Ireland hurling final, the play portrays a community exploding in exuberance and celebration while an underbelly of prejudice festers against a Travellers' site just outside the town and a relationship that develops between two young people.
