what is it about that night?

A small crowd gathers to get a glimpse of the star on stage, but the girl at the stage door has more exciting things in mind… 

In this intimate musical and theatrical performance Catherine Ireton takes a small audience through the secret world of the theatre using collected tales and a specially created set of songs. There’s something magical about glimpsing into an empty theatre – a forgotten tale whispered in the dressing room, the ceremony of walking onto the stage, and the quiet hush when the curtain has fallen.

Welcome to a world full of promise, of ghosts and quiet dramas. This is an exploration of the smallness of things, of letting go into the dark and walking into the light.

A startling discovery, Ireton has the voice of Mama Cass and the poise of Julie London‘ – The Guardian
