Gold in the Water tells the story of Bart and Harvey and the unexpected arrival of a mysterious goldfish! This brand-new Irish musical is a quirky, funny, life-affirming extravaganza for musical theatre lovers, thrill-seeking pet owners, and audiences young and old.

The queer Irish musical is created by Shane O’Reilly with Paul Curley, composed by Denis Clohessy and directed by Ronan Phelan. It stars Clare Barrett, Oliver Flitcroft, Kate Gilmore, Domhnall Herdman, Matthew Malone, Rachel O’Byrne, and more, and is going to be a guaranteed great night out!
