Ken McGuire last appeared in Scratcher. Previous to that he has appeared in all of our other plays with the exception of Shifting. He’s also produced the lot of them. He’s some man to talk.

Except it’s not a musical, it’s a play. Right? Well yes, and well, no. The central concept of Smitten is that life would be so much better if we could burst into song and dance like in a musical? And wasn’t everyone all the happier in musicals once they ignored the rain and all the […]
