“I shall stay the way I am, because I do not give a damn!” Dorothy Parker

Composer Trevor Knight and singer Honor Heffernan are delighted to present “The Whistling Girl”, featuring new musical settings of the poetry of the great Dorothy Parker.

Audiences can expect a darkly sardonic evening’s entertainment in which the American wit and critic’s words are given a sonic face-lift fusing ‘dirty’-cabaret, electronic-vaudeville, rock and jazz. A band of top Irish musicians including Garvan Gallagher/bass, Tom Jamieson/drums, Conor Brady/guitar and Trevor Knight/keyboards, will be fronted by internationally acclaimed vocalist and actress Honor Heffernan.

Dorothy Parker was an American poet, short story writer, critic and satirist, best known for her wit, wisecracks, and eye for 20th-century urban foibles (1893-1967).
