A poignant, absurd and hilarious tale of a 100-year-old Irishman... and his father.

“There’s a child belonging to me wandering around out there for seventy years and I never met him. I’ve a trip left in me… Get me leg!”

Mark Doherty’s award-winning Trad tells the hilarious story of 100-year-old Thomas… and his father. Together they set out to discover the son they never knew he had.

Featuring live traditional Irish music, and directed by renowned actor Aaron Monaghan, Trad is a side-splitting, heartwarming saga that marks the return of Livin’ Dred Theatre Company.
