The Epic of Cuchulainn

Feb 27, 2018

by galwaytheatrefestival

A hero can live forever on the lips of storytellers.

A boy takes up arms, and becomes the howling Hound of Ulster. The stories he inspires are his legacy. Tales of his hero’s light and battle rage, of blushing Ulsterwomen and their fuming husbands, of triumph and grievous loss, of otherworldy power and a fragility that is all too human.

Candlelit Tales presents the Epic of Cúchulainn, re-telling a Celtic Irish legend that has been passed down for over 2,000 years. Join us as we keep a legend alive in the cosy, intimate setting of the Crane Bar.

Following hugely popular shows in Galway Theatre Festival 2016 and 2017, sibling storytelling duo Aron and Sorcha Hegarty return once more with their own unique and mesmerizing version of the Cúchulainn myth, accompanied by an evocative live musical scoring. Read More
