The story begins 35 years later when Noelle embarks on a journey to uncover her true identity and how the system both church and state made every step so difficult. Told through the eyes of a private investigator it is in a poignant and humorous account of an adopted person’s search for identity through a series of letters. Told through a series of letters with Noelle Brown and Brid Ni Neachtain, who played Rose in the original production of Dancing at Lughnasa (which won a Tony away on Broadway) this is a show which has captured the hearts of audiences all over Ireland and the show is very adaptable.
