Presented by Emily Souter Johnson

What do a measuring tape, a priest with a clamped car and a polyester frill have in common? 

They all mean something to Emily.  

Follow her on a heart-warming story of love and laughter to find out what that is. She will take you on a journey back to Dublin, back in time, to the week her father died. In her own words; “some of the most fun 5 days of her life”  

There will be sing-a-longs, stories, laughter and tears all served with a healthy dose of brandy.    

Polyester is an honest, moving show that will transport you into the heart of an Irish family.  

Supported by ACTIVATE Performing Arts. 

This production contains swearing.
