A musical about a man the English don’t remember and the Irish will never forget.
Put your hands up for Oliver Cromwell: Daddy of Democracy, Puritan and total Taurus.
Ollie’s Army is back for a night of pure carnage, legendary pop anthems and bloody historical re-enactments. But listen, he’s very sorry. Really very sorry. Really.
This is history but not as you know it; Oliver Cromwell is Really Very Sorry is an outrageous new musical exploring English colonialism in Ireland framed by an archeological dig in search of Cromwell’s missing head.
The story sees award winning cabaret star and writer Xnthony channel England’s ‘Daddy of Democracy’ with an electrifying blend of pop bangers and musical theatre extravaganza. Oliver Cromwell is Really Very Sorry is a riotous musical by award winning party starter and cabaret star Xnthony which premiered at Dublin Fringe Festival in September 2022.
Written by Anthony Keigher, Sam Curtis Lindsay and ÓDÚ.
