Every last one of us got our own tune inside them. If you stay real quiet you can hear it. Listen...
A bleak and beautiful story, told through the folk music of Ireland and America.
1865 – the end of the US Civil War. Eliza Duane Mooney, daughter of an Irish emigrant, walks across America in search of her brother Jeddo, a child soldier in the Confederate army. As Eliza and Jeddo’s stories unfold, they shine a light on the stark realities of war, its invisible rise, and what is left in its wake.
Moonfish Theatre follow their acclaimed adaptation of Joseph O’Connor’s novel Star of the Sea with a unique re-imagining of O’Connor’s sequel, Redemption Falls. Presented as a theatre-gig, Redemption Falls weaves traditional folk song and music, visceral imagery and evocative storytelling in a breathtaking and intense theatrical experience.
- 24 – 28 July at An Taibhdhearc (Galway), as part of Galway International Arts Festival, in association with the Town Hall Theatre, Galway.
