Róisín is delighted to be playing the role of Claire in "Ordinary Days" this September for The Rising Theatre Company. This is an Irish premier of a modern American musical and it's on in Smock Alley Theatre from the 5th - 7th September.
Ordinary Days is a portrayal of four New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs. When the ever-optimistic Warren finds Deb's notes for her grad thesis, the two set in motion a series of events that not only change their lives, but the lives of fellow New Yorkers Claire and Jason.
When Deb loses her most precious possession--the notes to her graduate thesis--she unwittingly starts a chain of events that turns the ordinary days of four New Yorkers into something extraordinary. Told through a series of intricately connected songs and vignettes, Ordinary Days is an original musical about growing up and enjoying the view.
Róisín Sullivan can be seen playing Rita in Educating Rita at the Mill Theatre, Dundrum from the 17th September to the 21st of September.
Educating Rita is an acclaimed comedy by Willy Russell (Shirley Valentine, Blood Brothers) which tells the story of a brash, working-class hairdresser and her quest to educate herself for a better life. High-spirited Rita enrols in an Open University course and is paired with Frank, a burned-out, disillusioned professor who has developed a reliance on alcohol. An unlikely friendship grows through the hilarious and moving conversations they share over the course of a year, with each helping the other to rediscover their zest for life.

'Sullivan, who looked almost ethereal in Adele's floral dress and beige heels, handled the underwritten Adele's dramatic scenes with ease and maturity, sparkled when on stage and more than convinced of the peculiar balance between innocent and secretive that her conflicted character demands.'Miriam Zendle - Westend/Broadwayworld
