‘Naked Lunch’ A Gastronomical Indulgence
What happens when seasoned performers Kevin Brooking and Colm O’Grady create a show after 2 years of improvising with 100’s of frying
pans and a grain of popcorn?
The result is “Naked Lunch”.
Fading circus star Sally puts down her knitting needles and steps into the ring to give her finale performance, the performance a lifetime.
A universal show without words, Cirque de Sally is sensational, poetic and exceptionally eccentric.
Sweet as an onion, Sally will break your heart with laughter.
