We’re delighted to announce our brand new show, an adaptation of ‘A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

It will premiere at the Riverbank Arts Centre in Newbridge, where we are theatre artists in residence.

As part of the research for the show we’ve been doing puppetry and storytelling workshops with various community groups in Kildare, to share our skills and road test this story. We’ve worked with Kildare Youth Theatre, Griese Youth Theatre, University of the Third Age in Maynooth and Naas Daycare Centre.

It will have two performances on 20th July.

Tickets are available here. And Collapsing Horse members whose donations entitled them to complimentary tickets and sneak peaks, should get in touch with Kate Ferris [email protected]
