Fíbín sa Taibhdhearc

Muc Rí

written and directed by Philip Doherty

Muc Rí is a cautionary tale dealing with Faustian themes when a son betrays his maker for the promise of riches, and the chance to play God.

Scéal forálach is ea Muc Rí a mheabhraíonn téamaí ársa Faustus dúinn, áit a dtréigeann mac a athair ar mhaithe le saibhreas agus le Dia a dhéanamh de féin. Mar a bheadh úrscéal grafach ar stáitse, is léamh samhlaíoch, ceolmhar agus radacach é seo ar sheanscéal miotaseolaíochta a bhailigh Lady Gregory agus nach eol do mhórán.

Like a graphic novel on stage, this is an absurdist, radical and operatic re –imagining of a relatively unknown myth collected by Lady Gregory in Gods and Fighting Men. Audiences will be immersed in an ultra –bizarre surrealist world, where a live electronic band will create the atmosphere of a rock concert.
