A new musical by Shauna Carrick is running at the Mill Theatre, Dundrum, from November 6-10. ‘Chromatics’ is directed by multi-award-winning British director and champion of new Musical Theatre, Andrew Keates.

Chromatics tells the story of James, who is trying to create his first play, while Al is ready to fly the nest for the big city and Kate is trying to hold it all together.

This is a story about graduating, dreaming big and slowly realising that “it” might not happen, at least not as planned. Aspirations swiftly dashed, plans pulverised and unexpected ultimatums, we follow a group of young Irish friends as they journey through their new unknown using a contemporary Irish score.
