After making their debut in April of 2015 in the Róisín Dubh in the run up to the Marriage Equality vote, O’Connor and Sharpe are back.

Blending their individual styles, Katie’s melodic vocals beautifully complement Steven’s flamboyant sass to create a lush sound. The realness is right here. Sharpe will also perform extracts form his theatre show The Realness of Miss Representation.
This performance is for over 18's only.
