Moonfish Theatre Company
Based on the best-selling novel by Joseph O’Connor, and a sell-out hit of the Galway International Arts Festival, this is an un-missable piece of Irish theatre. In the winter of 1847 the famine ship Star of the Sea sets sail for the Promised Land. Among the passengers are a maidservant, a ruined Lord, and a ruthless murderer. Moving between the wild landscape of Connemara, grimy London streets, and the claustrophobic confines of the famine ship, this sweeping production charts the lives of the three characters, from the childhoods that shaped them to their final, fateful journey. Told through Moonfish’s signature style, the journey comes to life as six performers use projection, physicality, live sound effects and music to conjure the worlds of the characters.
