Theatre - Suitable for Kids!! The Wrens by Dan Colley

April 19, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


What :

Experience a bit of magic in this 2pm Show in the riverbank arts centre Newbridge.


Saturday 2pm 22nd April

More Information :

An odd collection of tricksters live in the gorse bushes at the edge of the town. They’re best left alone, the townsfolk say. We’ve nothing to do with them. What they don’t say is; except the odd healing spell, love cure, hair-cut, or to burn them out of their nests once a year. This magic-realist piece for audiences aged 8+ is a poignant, funny, and wildly speculative interpretation of history and myths.

A new piece from Dan Colley (A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings, Lost Lear) is bound to captivate and inspire.

Co-commissioned by Draiocht and co-produced by Riverbank Arts Centre, supported both by Fishamble’s New Play Clinic and The Ark; funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.
