Big Shot The Musical will take to the stage of London’s Irish Centre for its UK premiere, 15-20 August, as part of Camden Fringe 2016.
Written and composed by 23-year-old Dubliner Lauryn Gaffney, Big Shot received outstanding critical acclaim for its US premiere at the San Diego International Fringe Festival last year.
Described as an “absolute success” by the festival organisers, Big Shot was awarded the admired Spirit of Fringe Award, their most prestigious award.
Following five incredibly successful nights in California and one night in Mexico the Irish cast were also part of WorldTheatre History by being part of the first ever Bi-National Fringe Festival.
With a blend of energetic and poignant songs and a suitable amount of drama one would expect of a Broadway-style musical, Big Shot is an exposition of original Irish composition and writing that simply cannot be missed.

Big Shot tells the story of one Jeremy Crocker, a savvy defense lawyer thriving in New York City’s bustling legal profession. Despite his ambitions, Crocker falls in love with Carrie, struggling Irish artist who works in Crocker’s go-to café in Downtown Manhattan.
Although the two become ever more infatuated by each other, this threatens to derail Crocker’s career, with regard to the dubious new defense case he has taken on. Does Crocker follow his heart or stick with his legal client obligations? The theme of the story is love, justice and living in the moment.
