Breakfast on Pluto - the musical

Posted on Thursday 12th March

Duke is thrilled to be able to announce that he is the composer for the brand new musical ‘Breakfast on Pluto’, based on the novel by Patrick McCabe.

The musical is produced by Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival, co-produced by Birmingham Repertory Theatre in association with the Donmar Warehouse and directed by Des Kennedy.

The rural Irish border town of Tyreelin at the height of the Troubles is no place for a wonderfully unpredictable child like Patrick/Pussy Braden, illegitimate offspring of an errant priest and a long-gone local girl. Dismayed by small-town bigotry, religious repression and the IRA’s lack of fashion sense, Pussy ditches watchtowers and checkpoints for the faraway galaxy of 1970s London in search of a long-lost mother and a technicolour new life.

This dazzling new musical will premiere at the Galway International Arts Festival from 9th - 26th July.

It then runs at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin from 30th July - 15th August

The first UK shows are at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 3rd - 26th September

The final run is at London’s Donmar Warehouse from 2nd October - 21st November

Tickets are on sale now.
