Mary McEvoy captivates her audience in this delightful, moving one woman show. Della Dolan shows us how to make ‘the perfect Fruitcake’ as she divests provoking memories of her life on an Irish farm. She divulges a chequered past involving hardship, murder and intrigue but most of all great sacrifice, realisation and love. This play will make you laugh and cry and remind you why life is ultimately rewarding and exciting for all its ups and downs.

When they cannot repay their debt, the bitterly vengeful creditor demands a gruesome payment instead.
