STAR OF THE SEA (RÉALT NA MARA)

Bunaithe ar an úrscéal LE JOSEPH O’CONNOR

Suite i gConamara, i Londain agus ar long an Ghorta Mhóir, pléann Star of the Sea ceisteanna teanga, talún agus cultúir.

Seo scéal díoltais agus maithiúnais ar bhord na loinge ‘Star of the Sea’, a bhfuil a bealach á déanamh aici chuig Nua-Eabhrac sa bhliain 1847 le linn an Ghorta Mhóir.

I measc na bpaisnéirí, tá Mary Duane, cailín aimsire, Lord Merridith, tiarna talún atá i ngrá léi, agus Pius Mulvey, dúnmharthóir atá ag iarraidh Lord Merridith a mharú.

Scéal faoi phaisean agus faoi thinneas, le téamaí agus nithe go leor eile cosúil le tréigean, bréaga, bochtaineacht agus bás. Tá sé bunaithe ar úrscéal Joseph O’Connor, a bhfuil clú agus cáil bainte amach go hidirnáisiúnta aige le deich mbliana anuas.

Pléann an scéal seo ceisteanna teanga, talún agus cultúir.

Beidh an scéal inste le ceol beo, le hamhráin, le híomhánna, agus le gluaiseacht sa léiriúchán nua fuinniúil, atá cruthaithe ag comhlacht Moonfish.

Sa chliar, tá Máiréad Ní Chróinín, Ionia Ní Chróinín, Grace Ní Chadhla, Morgan Cooke, Zita Monahan, agus Simon Boyle.

Beidh an dráma léirithe le meascán Gaeilge agus Béarla agus mar sin beidh sé oiriúnach do chách, pé cumas Ghaeilge atá acu.

Dráma cumhachtach, fuinniúil agus spreagúil – ná caill é!

Comhléiriú idir An Taibhdhearc agus Moonfish Theatre. Díoladh amach an dráma seo nuair a léiríodh don chéad uair é le linn Fhéile Ealaíne Idirnáisiúnta na Gaillimhe 2014.

Is dírithe ar dhaoine fásta amháin atá an léiriú seo agus tá sé feiliúnach d’aon duine atá os cionn 16 bliana d’aois.

A TAIBHDHEARC and MOONFISH THEATRE PRODUCTION

STAR OF THE SEA (RÉALT NA MARA)

Based on the novel by JOSEPH O’CONNOR

Blending language, song, movement and imagery, this exciting and inventive production brings Joseph O’Connor’s epic novel to the stage as part of their national tour.

Star of the Sea is a sweeping story, set during the Famine, that moves between the wild landscape of Connemara, Co. Galway and the claustrophobic confines of a famine ship – the Star of the Sea. It is this ship that sets sail for the promised land and makes the journey from Ireland to New York, in 1847.

Among the passengers are maidservant Mary Duane, the ruined Lord Meredith, and Pius Mulvey, a ruthless murderer. Their lives and fates are more connected than any of them know, creating a gripping story of revenge and forgiveness in this new piece of Irish theatre.

It asks a number of timeless questions which not only straddle Irish history but are very pertinent to many other countries including the Ireland of today: what happens when a society is put under immense pressure? What are the ethical choices that face individuals at these moments in time? And what has been the Famine’s lasting effect on Irish culture, in particular, the Irish language and music?

Created and performed by Moonfish Theatre (Ionia Ní Chróinín, Grace Kiely, Zita Monahan, Morgan Cooke, Simon Boyle & Máiréad Ní Chróinín).

Star of the Sea is a bilingual play that will be performed in Moonfish Theatre’s signature blend of Irish and English, the show will be accessible to audiences with little or no Irish.

A Taibhdhearc and Moonfish production. It was first performed last year as part of the Galway International Arts Festival and it was a sell out success.

The show has been created for an adult audience, and is suitable for anyone over 16 years.
