Not a whole lot happens in February.
That’s why it’s an excellent time to retreat to the cosy darkness of the theatre and leave the entertainment to the experts. Next month, Cork’s Everyman is hosting just the thing.
Described as a “fairytale folk opera for adults told through movement, music, and puppetry” BrokenCrow Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Our Tethered Kin, a new play by Ronan FitzGibbon, at The Everyman, Cork on Friday, February 3rd, and Saturday, February 4th, 2023 before a run in Dublin.
“Our Tethered Kin is the story of two siblings, Aeni and Abrafo who are found at the edge of the darkest wood populated by Beasts that guide the actions of man,” they explain.
“As the siblings grow up, the cruelties of their world send them down two very different paths – one seeks out a brilliant new light to illuminate the woods, while the other is dragged through the darkness, desperate to find a way back to his sister.”
Directed by longtime collaborators Gavin McEntee and Evan Lordan, the cast features an exciting blend of Ireland’s established performers and promising talent – Raymond Keane, Katie Honan, George Hanover, Rosie O’Regan, Claire Keating, Dylan Kennedy, Emily Kilkenny Roddy and Graham Butler Breen.
Tickets, €23 (€11 for students), are available now here.
