...an ciúnas a chreimfeas an ceantar seo – níos measa ná ceimiceán ar bith...

Following our sell-out run at the Galway International Arts Festival, BAOITE comes to the Peacock Stage this May. BAOITE by Darach Mac Con Iomaire is a co-production between An Taibhdhearc and the Abbey Theatre.

Scéinséir dorcha faoi lánúin iascaireachta a bristear ó chéile de bharr ciúnas agus bréaga an phobail agus iad sáite in agóid in aghaidh comhlachta fraiceála mara.

A fishing family leads a desperate fight to defend their coastal community from the imminent threat of offshore fracking – but as the constant pressure of campaigning mounts, hidden fractures appear in the once-solid clan, as lies, legacies, deceit and ultimate betrayal undermine the family and destroy the community.

Having written and directed the multi-award winning TV crime series Corp + Anam, this new Abbey commission by Darach Mac Con Iomaire sees the welcome return to the stage of one of Ireland’s most exciting writers.

Léirithe i gcomhar le Foras Na Gaeilge, Comhairle Cathrach Bhaile Átha Cliath & Comhairle Cathrach na Gaillimhe.

Reviews

★★★★
'Baoite is a powerful tour-de-force that compels and challenges. It should be on the top of everyone’s list this festival season'
The Reviews Hub


'Slog an Baoite agus gabh chuig sárdhráma Mhic Con Iomaire. Script chorraitheach, léiriú físiúil samhlaíoch agus sáraisteoireacht – is fiú go mór freastal ar Baoite'
