A whopping great hangover kept Goold from the Wimbledon prize while a head in a hat box almost sent him to the gallows. The electrifying new theatre company Cheery Wild, have starched their whites, re-stretched their racquets and are ready to serve a virtuoso volley of Victorian melodrama.

The award-winning company deliver a hilarious, rapid-fire, homicidal train ride from passion to pandemonium and if you’re lucky you might even get strawberries and cream along the way. Two struggling players, a trunk of props, and a ludicrous soundtrack combine to recount the Goold’s extraordinary globe- trotting journey from the heady heights of sporting stardom to complete catastrophe. “Love All” was winner of 2011 Clonmel Junction Festival ‘Judges Choice Award’. A performance co-created and performed by Aideen Wylde and Tadhg Hickey. Co-created and directed by Donal Gallagher and music by Darqhorse. Tickets €12/€10 (056) 77 61674 www.watergatetheatre.com
