26-26 June 2009


Tickets: 12

From her humble 1987 beginnings in a night club on Dame Lane in a dark Dublin back-alley on April Fool’s Day, to her current incarnation as a voluptuous, rowdy spectacle, bursting at the seams at the Olympia Theatre on St Patrick’s weekend, the highs and lows of the Alternative Miss Ireland are presented in this lecture-style theatre piece from Niall Sweeney.

A moving performance from one of the original founders of AMI charts the hysterical history of the transgressive Queen Cailín with a charitable heart that is now commonly known as ‘Gay Christmas’.
