The Curse of the Button Accordion is a one-woman show by comedian Sharon Mannion that tells a fantastical and faintly ridiculous version of her life story growing up in a small Roscommon village.

Wondering, as a child, what to make of her life when she grows up, Sharon discovers she has a musical gift. She pesters her parents – a Midlands FM listening mother and an ex-showband singer father – to buy her a button accordion. The accordion, Frank, subsequently plays a massive role in Sharon’s life, until her relationship with it begins to sour.

Mannion is a wonderful storyteller, who laces her silliness with moments of pathos. The Curse of the Button Accordion is bizarre and engrossing, and will have you in stitches throughout.
