“A music-and-literature extravaganza” - Time Out New York
After ten sold out seasons at the Irish Arts Centre in New York, and two highly successful Irish tours in 2017 and 2019, Muldoon’s Picnic comes to the Peacock Theatre for one night only!
An omnium-gatherum of poetry, prose and music, Muldoon’s Picnic is hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon. Muldoon will be joined by house band Rogue Oliphant, a collective of musicians and composers including Cait O’Riordan (The Pogues). Special musical and literary guests on the night include Iarla O’Lionard, Nick Laird, and Zadie Smith.
This tour is produced by Poetry Ireland and supported by an Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Arts Council of Northern Ireland Touring Grant.
'A superb and memorable night. Highly recommended'
