PARADE - A MUSICAL DRAMA
PARADE at The Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny in April, 2017.
Parade tells the heart-wrenching, true story of Leo Frank: a Brooklyn-raised Jewish man living in Atlanta who was wrongfully convicted of the rape and murder of his thirteen-year-old employee, Mary Phagan, in 1913. A momentous case which split America in two, it has a characteristically rich, intricate, and wide-ranging score penned by Jason Robert Brown, and a bold willingness to dive into the complexities of early 20th century social relationships in the South. Parade is a sophisticated, dark tale with endless depths for a highly skilled company of actors and musicians to plumb.
Starring Sarah Brennan and Michael Hayes, with a highly skilled company of actors including David Doyle, Brendan Corcoran, Kevina Hayes, Kevin Reade, Eoghan Fingleton, Tony Murray and Ciarán Dunphy, and introducing Caoimhe Kelly, Ciara Laste, Kate Brosnan, Rachel Madden, Tervine Wallace, Lolley Sinyan and John Rice.
