Ever since she was a little girl, Paula Clarke has dreamed of taking part in the Rose of Tralee pageant. To wear the Rose of Tralee sash and sparkling tiara and bring pride to the Northside of Limerick city, her beloved Ballynanty.

But Paula has quite a few obstacles in her way before she achieves her dream, she has no sponsor, her family do not believe in her but is the biggest obstacle of all, her postal address? A drama, a comedy, a dramedy!

The Northside Misfits are celebrating their 8th year with this World Premier. It has 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. 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 6th production. The Misfits were invited by ‘Walk The Plank’ to take part in their ‘School of Spectacle’ for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2018”. During lockdown, the group adapted their play ‘taLK’ into a short film, which they shot in September 2021.
