Gold in the Water 26 Feb - 26 Mar 2023

One Thousand Pieces in a co-production with Mermaid Arts Centre, Project Arts Centre & The Ark present Gold in the Water, a fabulous new musical about family, friends and a fish!

Bart and Harvey have never been happier. They have just celebrated their first wedding anniversary with all their friends. When a mysterious goldfish lands on their doorstep, leading them to meet a very angry and righteous pet shop owner, their perfect lives are upended, and their world is changed forever.

Gold In The Water is the fabulous, funny and heartfelt new Irish musical from Shane O’Reilly with Paul Curley. Making its debut at Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray before opening at Project Arts Centre, Temple Bar, for a two-week run, this flamboyant theatrical extravaganza features original music by award-winning composer Denis Clohessy performed with a full live band.

This hilarious tale looks at how we deal with the unexpected, and our ability to handle something new that has come out of the blue. With a tap-dancing rabbit, a singing terrapin, a magical goldfish and a stellar cast of people, fish, birds and pets, Gold in the Water is a quirky, funny, life-affirming spectacular for musical theatre lovers, thrill seeking pet owners and audiences young and old!
