The Táin

The city is the state, the tribes collide, a hero emerges.

The epic Irish tale of Cúchulainn and Queen Maeve is re-set in the present day, in the simmering underworld of urban turf wars. Fired by passion and pride, Cúchulainn seeks to defend his territory at all costs. In this explosive re-imagining of the ancient story, there are scores to be settled, sacrifices to be made and the ultimate prize to be claimed.

This spectacular production combines physical theatre and urban art forms with heart-stopping performances by a cast of international, national and local, hip hop theatre artists, to a searing original soundtrack by Icarus Rising.

Presented in association with Limerick City of Culture and Dance Limerick.

Suitable for audiences over 12 years.
Please note: Some scenes including strobe-effect flashing lights
