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.

Due to unexpected restrictions, this show will now begin at 10.30pm.

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.

Performed in Irish with English surtitles
