Dublin's Weather Today
The Crystal Cage, Smock Alley Theatre, 27th October to 2nd November, 2.30pm and
7pm daily (except 31st October 2.30pm only and 2nd Nov 3pm only).  Disaster strikes the
Kingdom of Enchantasia when all the rainbows disappear!!! The Leprechauns, bankers to
the magical world, are deeply troubled, as without rainbows, they cannot locate their gold.
The Great Wizard Strogroth, leader of the High Council, is most distressed when he hears
this news. Not only will the Kingdom be in severe financial trouble but, without the rainbows,
all the colour in the world will drain away turning everything to black.  The Crystal Cage is full
of magical fun and adventure that everyone, from 4 to 84, will enjoy.
