The Long Way Home

AboutFACE Theatre

A New Irish musical featuring the songs of Tom Waits

In a scruffy old town called Dublin, a night-time city that devours booze and music, a stubborn old singer, down on his luck, and a trinity of ladies, none of them angels, all hold a very special place in their broken hearts for the songs of Mr. Tom Waits. Then California comes a-calling, and there’s light up ahead, but like a Tom Waits song, we can’t promise a happy ending …

From the company who brought you The Devil Himself (“A muscular and commanding engagement with fascinating events” – Irish Independent) and Orson Welles’ Christmas Carol (“Works extraordinarily well” – Sunday Independent)

WRITTEN BY Dave Cowzer and Jack Healy
CAST Carla de Búrca, Darina Gallagher, Jack Healy and Anna Nugent
