WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This hugely entertaining and successful musical comedy, Improbable Frequency -- winner of three Irish Times Theatre Awards including Best Production and Best Director -- is a joyous surreal satire that lifts the lid on Ireland's beloved neutrality and cuts to the heart of the tempestuous affair with its nearest neighbor - England! While war rages across Europe, Dublin revels in its knife-edge neutrality as the fledgling Irish Free State tries to remain open for business. A hotbed of political and cultural bohemians, the city is host to a volatile mixture of exiled intellectuals, literary bar- lizards, British spies and Nazi sympathizers. When coded messages, broadcast during an Irish radio-requests show, draw the attention of the British, a young code breaker called Tristram Faraday is sent across the Irish Sea to investigate. His enquiries lead him into a series of deeply improbable encounters, where the truth is more improbable than anyone could have imagined. There are subversive agents to placate, comely maidens to seduce, and a plot fizzing with deals, capers and extraordinary war-time conspiracies. The show features book and lyrics by Arthur Riordan and music by Bell Helicopter, and is directed by Rough Magic Artistic Director Lynne Parker.
