Theatre Breaks for The Commitments in London are no longer available to book. Click here to see what’s on next at the Palace theatre
Roddy Doyle’s best selling novel and BAFTA award winning film, The Commitments, has been adapted for the stage by the author himself and it’s proving to be one of the most popular choices for Theatre Breaks in London.
It tells the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working class music fan, who, after placing an advert in a music paper, begins to manage an unlikely bunch of amateurs and friends into an amazing live act – declaring it to be “the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced.”
The humour kicks in as the new band – The Commitments – get to know each other and their instruments, and proceed through early disastrous rehearsals to their first appearance in front of a paying audience.
