Blackwater Babble


  • Playwright

    Ronan Fitzgibbon 

  • Synopsis

    What makes a good singsong? What makes a great one? This is a story of forty Summers spent trying to answer that question. Forty Summers of rowing down the Blackwater river stopping in every pub along the way. Every noble call. Every session. Every maudlin ballad that killed a night and every table-thumping favourite that saved one!
