Golden Jackets & Black Bow Ties
In this new play, Johnny Johnston and Mick Garrett are two veteran musicians whose long musical careers look set to end playing in small pubs in the local area where they get little attention and even less adulation. Then out of the blue comes a chance to play a big gig which fires their enthusiasm right up. But as they start rehearsing, a rariety, we begin to get an insight into their relationship and motivation for performing to disinterested punters.

In this comedy where Buddy Holly looms large, where they attempt to make a funeral singer a star and where a sceptical drummer keeps them in check, these two long time friends, with the help of Johnny’s wife Mary, discover their need for recognition in whatever guise it comes.   

Supported by the Creative Ireland Programme and Monaghan County Council
