About this show

Set in the border 'bandit' country of Co. Monaghan, Laura, an aspiring actress, leaves her career in London when her life unexpectedly changes course. She returns home and joins her father to work in the mushroom tunnels - a far cry from her glamorous life in London. Frank McElroy, owner and resident outcast, takes a shine to Laura and the two embark on a unique journey of discovery and revelation. But Frank has a secret, and so does Laura... Highly acclaimed in its London incarnation, The Mushroom Pickers is true to its Irish heritage - poetry, rustic eccentricity, music, ghosts, and of course, The Troubles abound. Don't miss this American Premiere! Features onstage smoking.
