After its roaring success at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival ‘The Parting Glass: An Irish Journey’ is making its way around Australia with an October stop at The Gov.
With stellar reviews from The Advertiser already under his belt, this show harks back to Leith’s Irish roots and the songs that he and his Father would share together over a pint or three.
The musical play, which takes place in a pub, sees Leith take on the role of both father and a son as they unravel a deep secret that has haunted them both. It is filled with humour and emotion and features a life band.
‘The Parting Glass’ gives its audience an authentic Irish experience without the price tag. With a The Black Velvet Band playing Irish music the show exudes a ‘sitting in a pub having a pint of Guinness’ atmosphere.
Leith has curated the music himself using a rousing collection of songs that he has loved for years (Danny Boy, Raglan Road, Rocky Road to Dublin…), which feature traditional Irish instruments like the fiddle and the tin whistle.
Culturally enriching and touchingly personal, expect a night of cheek, joy and frivolity that only the Irish can channel!
The Parting Glass: An Irish Journey hits The Gov on 9 October 2015.
Tickets are currently available at $34.70+BF from www.thegov.com.au.
