Lay-by signs are popping up in the windows and at the pay points of many a chain store as struggling retailers embrace the interest-free payment model in a bid to entice consumers with maxed-out credit cards and tainted credit records.
Set against the backdrop of Ireland, England and America in the 19th century and inspired by true events, Essence of Ireland tells a story of love, joy, happiness and heartache endured by Cora McGowan and Sean Dempsey as they are separated by emigration from each other and their beloved Ireland.
This moving story told through music, song and dance is a celebration of all things Irish and will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions giving audiences a unique Irish experience. St Patrick's Day is celebrated once a year throughout the world, but In Essence of Ireland, it is celebrated in every show!
Essence of Ireland runs at The Mandela within Joburg Theatre from April 17th to May 5th 2013.
