Gotta Make That Train - Starring Sandy Kelly

Johnny and Maria’s life was like their hit songs – perfectly in tune but times have changed and the picture perfect duet are now fighting to get back on track.

Can they become the dynamic duo they were once again and find perfect harmony in their home? Can Sandy through her beautiful use of words and songs help save them? This story set in a rundown Dublin bar sees wild and wonderful characters struggle with the ups and downs of life but in true Irish fashion they do so with a bucket of humour even in the most trying of circumstances. 


With an outstanding original score by BAFTA award winner Ian Bustard and Noella Brennan “Gotta make that train” gives a warm and affectionate look at good people trying to stop falling into bad.
