The play features many amusing scenes and Irish expressions.




The play covers the events in St. Patrickís life mixed with a dash of blarney and stirred with a lucky four-leafed clover.

When the young St. Patrick is taken by pirates to Ireland as a slave he is befriended by a leprechaun and clurichaun. St. Patrick shows them how to be kinder fairy-folk to humans, partly thanks to some Irish-dancing sheep. St. Patrick leaves Ireland and then returns later as a missionary. His two friends act as his companions as he journeys around Ireland banishing snakes, preaching, planting ash trees, meeting with legendary Celtic warriors and less-than-friendly druids.
