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, Trad is a side-splitting, heart-warming saga, directed by renowned actor Aaron Monaghan.
