The Giant Killers Thu 29th Nov 2018
Balally Players are back with their award winning production of ‘The Giant Killers’. The show will have 3 final Dublin dates ahead of their trip to Kilmuckridge, Co Wexford for the All Ireland One Act Festival Finals. Please come and support us!
‘The Giant Killers’ is the inspiring true story of football’s greatest ever underdogs. Set in the early years of Association Football, The Giant Killers follows a ragtag bunch of Lancashire mill workers who defied all odds to become the first working-class team in the country to play in the FA Cup. Left tired and despondent from the cotton famine of the 1870s, this small group of northern lads found pride and hope in a game that up until then had been reserved for the upper classes. When the Battlefield is the football pitch, everyone is equal. The Giant Killers is an absorbing, heartfelt story of a town that came together to achieve the impossible and win the respect of the nation. A rip-roaring evening out, whether you know the off-side rule or not!
