The Snapper– one of Ireland’s most iconic movies is being turned into a play.

And Westside’s Amy Macken, Holly McGuinness and Mia Barry begin rehearsals this week. The girls will share the role of ‘The twins’ for the run at The Gate Theatre this summer, which is right next door to the Rotunda Hospital where Sharon’s baby ‘The Snapper’ is born.

The World Premiere of The Snapper will be brought to life by The Gate Theatre Dublin from June 14th to September 1st directed by Róisín McBrinn and adapted for stage by Roddy Doyle himself. The 1993 film was based on Roddy Doyle’s novel of the same name.

The girls will join the cast of Simon Delaney as Dessie Curley in the stage version of the story alongside; Hilda Fay, Kate Gilmore, Simon O’Gorman, and Amilia Stewart.

We look forward to seeing the girls in their Gate Debut.
