STAR OF THE SEA AT THE DROICHEAD
MOONFISH Theatre’s critically-acclaimed, sell-out success ‘Star of the Sea’ is touring Ireland and the US this autumn, with a performance at Droichead Arts Centre on Thursday 16th November.
Based on Joseph O’Connor’s epic best-selling novel, this story of love, murder, revenge and forgiveness in the time of the Famine is back by popular demand. An unmissable piece of Irish theatre, Star of the Sea was a sell-out hit of the Galway International Arts Festival 2014, which was followed by a packed tour across Ireland in 2015.
Star of the Sea tells the story of a famine ship sailing from Cobh to the promised land of New York in the winter of 1847. On board are passengers with secrets to hide - a silent maidservant, a ruined lord, and a murderer on the run - characters whose lives and fates are far more intertwined than they realise.
Moving between the wild landscape of Connemara, grimy London streets, and the claustrophobic confines of the famine ship, this sweeping production from the award-winning Moonfish Theatre charts the lives of the three characters, from the childhoods that shaped them to their final, fateful journey.
