Red Army is a tragicomedy celebrating the best of Munster Rugby focusing on Munster women as pundits and fans.
UPDATE: Red Army rescheduled for February 2021 at the Lime Tree Theatre
The play focuses on four middle-aged diehard female Munster supporters from Limerick. They have been members of Munster’s Red Army for over a decade. From staying in a brothel in Castres to singing ‘Stand up and Fight’ on a tram in Treviso and winning both Heineken Cups in Cardiff- they’ve been there. Now we find them in Paris for the first match of the season in October 2016. But after years of their glorious team coming agonisingly close to reaching the expected exalted heights, the cracks begin to show in their friendship. When team manager, Anthony, “Axel” Foley, dies unexpectedly hours before kick-off, it acts as a catalyst for honesty in their friendships as we shadow them from Paris back home to a grieving Limerick. Their own personal stories unfold across a pivotal week, charting their friendships, their loves, and their daily lives in the shadow of Axel’s death.
