With just her sax and a suitcase, Zandra Mitchell joined a jazz band and toured the world. Born in Phibsborough, Dublin in 1903, she was Ireland’s first female saxophonist. While the twenties roared she found her way through Europe to Berlin. The dictators rose; the books burned; the bombs dropped… and Zandra played her sax. Darn Skippy Productions present Zandra, Queen of Jazz — a play with original music, based on an extraordinary true story. Written and performed by Roseanne Lynch, directed by Katherine Soloviev, original music, arrangements and sound design by Richard Lennon Supported by dlr Libraries and an Emerging Artist Bursary from dlr Arts Office.
