Remember when getting on a plane was sophisticated and air-hostesses were treated like supermodels? Remember when garlic was frightening, sunshine was a rumour, and Ireland sat at the edge of Europe, floating like a bit of cracked milk in your cup of tea?

A Suitcase Full Of Groceries is a story telling homage to the history of the package holiday, when Irish families replete with post Vatican II notions of themselves, stuffed their wheel-less baggage full of cupboard staples, and took to the skies.

Sonya Kelly is a writer and performer, featuring regularly on RTÉ’s Arena and The Savage Eye, and has toured the globe with her award-winning solo shows.
