THE Northside Misfits Community Drama Group return to the Limerick stage with a world premiere this week.

Following on from the success of plays taLK, Buried in the Past, Behind the Scenes (Loosely), the group takes to the stage at the Northside Youth Space on Wednesday and Thursday, April 11 and 12.

The new play, Mein Gott, features an airport, a snowstorm, a deadly virus, a newborn baby, illegal smuggling and a flash mob - just another day in the Northside International Airport, laughs director Karen Fitzgibbon.

“It’s been a very busy few years for the Misfits with their previous plays selling out in the Belltable and the Northside Youth Space and an invite to Manchester by ‘Walk The Plank’ street theatre company for the Manchester Day Parade and subsequently in the Limerick St Patrick’s Day parade” she explains.

“They also travelled to the Aviva in Dublin for the Palliative Care Conference to perform their highly acclaimed play taLK. The group formed in September 2014 and this will be their fifth production,” she adds.

Tickets available from 061-326623 and there will be a raffle for a signed Munster jersey.
