With a cheeky nod to the work of Willy Russell, we unveil the final character from Stags and Hens, the lead singer of The Blood Brothers, Peter Taylor.
Played by Eddie Murphy, Peter is the cocksure, charming, lead singer of this up and coming band. A band unfortunate enough to be booked into a dive of a Liverpool club before their single became a hit. Fulfilling their dates, Peter finds himself back in the hometown that he managed to escape years ago for the bright lights of London. And now that he’s back, he can see why he left. But there’s also the one girl that could have made him stay. And she just so happens to be on her hen night in the same club. Eddie Murphy has previously appeared with Devious Theatre in Cannibal! The Musical.
Also featured in the band poster are Laurent Murray, Kevin Mooney (our director) and Jack O’Leary. And don’t they look hardcore? Paddy also snuck in a few nods to two other well known Willy Russell plays into the poster. Who says we’re not suckers for detail? We’ll also be putting plenty of these bad boys in the toilets of the Watergate Theatre for the week of the show so you never know, you might be able to find one to sneak off with.
Stags and Hens will open this day next week, July 21st and run until July 25th in The Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny. Tickets can be booked on 056 – 7761674.
