Clerkin Dagger Presents The Bad Arm: Confessions of a Dodgy Irish Dancer Written and performed by Maire Clerkin Directed by Dan O'Connor As Part of the Camden Fringe Festival Tristan Bates Theatre, 1a Tower Street, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9NP 1st - 5th August 2017 at 6:15pm Tickets £10.00 / Concessions £8.00 Box office: 020 3841 6611 or email: Excellent entertainment exposing the cut-throat world of Irish dancing with LOL humour & pathos, Val McDermid Raw rhythms. Tall tales. Arse-clenching comedy. It's the antidote to Riverdance. She's English in Ireland, Irish in England, and a pink-haired punk in 1970s London. A rich seam of comic failure. This ugly-duckling-never-quite-swan recounts her experiences like only a convent-educated Irish catholic girl can. Maire Clerkin jumps in and out of Irish dancing shoes, clicking and kicking her way across the decades. An irreverent, poignant one woman play about the seedy underbelly of Irish Dance. Maire is a Londoner now based in Los Angeles. She premiered and toured The Bad Arm across the USA and at the Edinburgh Festival in 2015 to wide critical acclaim, selling out at the Gilded Balloon. This will be the show's first outing in London.
