One Night Stands returns o local theatres. From the author of 'Packie's Wake' Eddie Kerr's "One Night Stands" is an uniquely innovative piece of theatre which transports the audience to a dancehall on the West Coast of Ireland. The year is 1961 and it is St. Valentine's Night. 'Tonight's the Night'....The Derry based showband the Barracudas are playing their first gig in a syndicated ballroom; a real big deal for the band on the cusp of greatness...meaning if they do 'it' tonight they can do 'it' anywhere with guaranteed bookings and celebrity status within reach. There has never been a more important night for the band and their innovative leader 'Flash' McCann and their brilliant music… and the punters couldn't get enough.....and neither could the greedy dancehall owners who formed a syndicate to control and maximise their profits..... this is the superb and hilarious story of how one band just wanted to play music...nor just any music but rock and roll..While the dancehalls are often described as the 'ballrooms of romance' on the most romantic night of the year the backstage green room was anything but love and roses... while future fame and fortune was within a finger grasp of the band while they preferred to.... well.....you'll just have come along when the play hits the stage make sure you bring your loudest laugh, jiving shoes, singing voice and prepare to be entertained with the unique sound of the Barracuda Showband.
