Where the Willow Meets the Ash @ The Viking Theatre
'Where the Willow Meets the Ash' written by Malachy McKenna, starring Tom Lawlor, Michael James Ford, Malachy Mc Kenna and directed by Bairbre Ní Chaoimh will run at the Viking Theatre from Monday 5th August to Saturday 17th.
After a sell-out run earlier this year, we are delighted to welcome back to The Viking the sequel to Malachy McKenna’s hugely successful and multi-award-winning drama, The Quiet Land.
When the chaotic and easy going bachelor farmer Bobby Hogan gets a visit from a smooth-talking Englishman, all sorts of local rivalries and ancient grudges are stirred up. Who is this mysterious blow-in? What are his intentions regarding the beautiful barmaid Polish Maria? And, more importantly, what are his plans for Nayshee’s Acres, site of the old hurling pitch and sacred among generations?
The appearance of the belligerent old neighbour, Eamon McConnell, introduces new issues in the struggle for the soul of the hillside and, ultimately, heartbreaking family secrets are revealed.
Where the Willow Meets the Ash is a serious comedy about stubborn men from the hilarious pen of an outstanding Irish writer.
Tickets are €15 and can be booked by phoning 087-1129970. Shows begin at 8 pm with doors opening at 7.45 pm.
