Fly Me To The Moon

  • Tara-Lynne O'Neill
  • Katie Tumelty
    Grand Opera House, Belfast

    Francis and Loretta are community care visitors. Unknown to him, Davy, one of their elderly charges, has had a significant win on the horses. When the cash-strapped women learn that Davy will not be around for a considerable time they are faced with a mouth-watering dilemma.

    Initially commissioned by Paines Plough, Fly Me To The Moon was extended for its run at the Grand Opera House and marked Marie's directing debut.

    Jones, who also directs the play, has an exceptional knack of portraying the Belfast characters...Congratulations all round.

    (a) clever, witty romp... The 90 minutes – ahem – fly in, thanks in no small part to Jones’s wonderful writing Andrew Johnston

    an entertaining double-hander in which Jones makes a punchy directing debut, coaxing deft performances from Tara Lynne O’Neill and Katie Tumelty Jane Coyle
