Fíbín are back with a nationwide tour for schools, particularly for the Leaving Cert curriculum. This year the award winning company brings you An Triail, which was first performed in the Damer Theatre in 1964 but this is An Triail as you’ve never seen it before. Prepare for puppets, high entertainment, and such engaging visuals that students will actually want to answer questions on it. Bringing a seemingly outdated plot into the context of our modern society, Fíbín seek to address issues highlighted by both teachers and students alike. Difficulties in relating to the characters as the drama unfolds, comprehending the confinements of 1950s Ireland and seeing beyond the black and white nature of dialogue are all dealt with in this snappy Fíbín production. Come and see for yourselves!
An Triail comes to Tuar Ard, Moate on Monday November 30 to Friday December 4. For more information call (090 ) 6482042.
