Moonfish Theatre & An Taibhdhearc- Star of the Sea
Star of the Sea
Theatre - Thursday 1st October @ 8.00pm
at Linenhall Theatre
A Moonfish Theatre and An Taibhdhearc Co-Production. Presented by the Strollers Touring Network
In the winter of 1847 the famine ship Star of the Sea sets sail for the Promised Land. Among the passengers are a maidservant, a ruined lord, and a ruthless murderer. Moving between the wild landscape of Connemara, grimy London streets, and the claustrophobic confines of the famine ship, this sweeping production charts the lives of the three characters, from the childhoods that shaped them to their final, fateful journey.
Told through Moonfish's signature style of bi-lingual theatre, the journey comes to life as six performers use projection, physicality, live sound effects and music to conjure the worlds of the characters on a bare stage.
Based on the best-selling novel by Joseph O'Connor, and a sell-out hit of the Galway International Arts Festival 2014, this new piece of Irish theatre is unmissable.
NB. Star of the Sea is accessible to non-Irish speakers.
