Little Gem, by Elaine Murphy swept the boards during its sell out run as part of the 2008 Dublin Fringe Festival. It was also the surprise hit of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that year and the first ever Irish production to receive the prestigious Carol Tambor Award. Now Little Gem is back and this heart-warming tale of courage, comedy and romance is ready to woo audience once again.
