Ross O’Carroll-Kelly's 'Postcards from the Ledge' is set to return to the Gaiety Theatre from 9th - 14th April 2018 for strictly one week only due to phenomenal public demand.
Having opened to rave reviews and standing ovations last October, don’t miss your chance to see the hilarious ‘Postcards from the Ledge’ starring Rory Nolan as it makes a highly anticipated return to The Gaiety Theatre, news that will delight Ross O'Carroll-Kelly fans in the run-up to Christmas. Tickets from €22 (including service charge) go on sale this Friday 24 November from Ticketmaster outlets and The Gaiety Theatre box office. Book now to avoid disappointment.
Directed by Irish Times Theatre Award winner Jimmy Fay, the show stars the award-winning actor Rory Nolan, who has played Ross since his stage incarnation over the past decade.
 Postcards from the Ledge is the fourth Ross O’Carroll-Kelly stage play, following the hugely successful trilogy of Breaking Dad (which played at the Gaiety to sell-out audiences an unprecedented three times in 2014, 2015 and 2016), Between Foxrock and a Hard Place (2010-2011) and The Last Days of the Celtic Tiger – famously written before the crash, in 2007.  
 
 Paul Howard's character Ross O'Carroll-Kelly started life in a newspaper column almost twenty years ago. He has since become the star of a critically acclaimed series of books that satirised Ireland during the years of its economic boom and bust and have sold well over one million copies in Ireland alone. He was named Irish Newspaper Columnist of the Year in 2013 for his weekly column in the Irish Times, one of the most widely read in the newspaper, and has received a record three Irish Book Awards.
 
 
The year is 2029 and Ireland is in the midst of an economic boom. Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is about to turn 50 – and life could not be better for him. His wife, Sorcha, is the Taoiseach. 
His triplet boys are the backbone of the Castlerock College Junior Cup team. And he still does alright with the ladies. 
As the Managing Director of Hook, Lyon and Sinker estate agents, he spends most of the day with his feet up. But when a client rings and asks someone to put a valuation on 22 Glenageary Glen, a semi-detached house in Sallynoggin, Ross decides to do the job himself. The reason is that he recognizes the address as his childhood home.
 
As he stands in the doorway of the run-down, council-built house, the sediment of old memories is stirred up. And he takes us on a journey of remembrance, through happy times and sad times, laughter and tears, until he realizes that the job of putting a price on the house – and its treasure of memories – is impossible.
 
Because it’s priceless.
