Catch of the Day

There are no scheduled instances of Catch of the Day. You can view similar events below.

Ireland, 1966. An ordinary skipper sails into the sleepy town of Dingle with a very unusual catch… 

Chaos immediately ensues and a ridiculous series of events are put into motion, involving the head of the Irish government, a publican who happens to be an amateur marine biologist, a magical dolphin, the actual Queen of England, and a whole bunch of really confused nuns. 

An unbelievable true story, Catch of the Day is a riotous romp of a play, all set in a West of Ireland pub. Built from the testimonies of those who remember, this ‘side-splittingly funny’ (The Irish Post ★★★★★) and ‘utterly joyous’ (Within Her Words ★★★★★) mash-up of live music, comedy, and theatre, is the ‘ideal show for a night out with friends and family’ (London Theatre 1 ★★★★★).

Following an award-nominated run at Edinburgh Fringe (shortlisted for Best Musical), critically acclaimed, sell-out shows in London and Oxford, and fresh from its home-coming Irish tour, Catch of the Day visits Maidenhead for the first time.

Bring your mates and your mammy, grab a pint with the lads from Dingle, and get ready for one craic-ing night out. 

One fish can make a big splash. 

Presented by Red Fox Theatre. Award nominated theatre company, Red Fox Theatre was formed in 2018. They make children's theatre for grown-ups, unashamedly silly, experimental and a little bit educational.
