Roddy Doyle’s The Commitments : The Saviours of Soul (to give it its full title) took more than two years to adapt by the top-10-popular-theatre-breaksauthor from his own best selling Booker prize winning novel.

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.
