Performed in Irish and English, audiences are invited to experience Irish as a theatrical language, translated continuously through subtitles, movement and song – completely accessible to non-Irish speakers. There will be a Question & Answer session with the company after each performance.
Here is a trailer to the play.
The play is adapted from Joseph O'Connor's best-selling novel about passengers on a ship, Star of the Sea, that sets sail from Ireland to America in 1847, the height of the Irish Famine.
