Event Description

Rural Ireland meets the Middle East in a plot which follows middle aged farmer Paddy, whose lust for life has long vanished. A trip to the ancient city of Petra in Jordan encourages him to feel a fresh wonder for the world, develop new friendships and begin an exciting love affair…with himself. Pretending to lose his passport so he can stay longer in Petra, Paddy begins a journey of recovery and renewed enthusiasm for living. How long until responsibilities of old take hold of him again, however? A play about survival, strength and carrying on. The role of Paddy will be performed by Cork actor Brendan Dunlea (An Cailin Ciúin, Ros na Rún). Written and Directed by award winning Tipperary writer Áine Ryan Music by Eyal Arad & Cáit Ní Riain Lighting Design by Alex Forey Set Design by Constance Comparot Dramaturgy by Pamela McQueen with thanks to support from Galway Theatre Festival Photography by Steve Gregson
