After two successful productions in New York, ‘Eternal Youth’ returns to Galway.
‘Eternal Youth’ is a deep dive into the psyche of young people and the disconnect between them and the adults that surround them. Playwright Niamh Ryan (winner of the Sam Sheldon playwriting award and Irondale theatre bursary) works in stylised rhyme to portray the innate pressures that young people face in a unique and beguiling fashion. Ryan describes the play as “gritty, necessary and told honestly. It doesn’t shy away or pander to any audience or one way of thinking.”
The show uses the timeless tale of Peter Pan to illustrate both the struggle of youth and mental illness. It focuses on what it is to grow up and the fear of doing so.
‘Eternal Youth’ producer Niamh Ní Fhlatharta comments “Eternal Youth has been given a new lease of life in New York that we’re excited to show Galway audiences.”
‘Eternal Youth’ will be featured as part of the Galway Theatre Festival at the Bank of Ireland theatre May 3rd-6th at 8.30pm. To book tickets click here.
