The inspirational figure of Ireland’s mythological super-hero, Cú Chulainn, is the centre of DUSK, a new verse play by writer, poet and musician Eamon Carr.
Directed by award-winning theatre-maker Denis Conway.
In this unique drama, influenced by Agallamh na Seanórach (Colloquy of the Elders) and the Japanese Noh tradition, the ghost of Cú Chulainn appears in conversation with a modern young woman.
His Nemesis, the Morrigan, seen in the form of a crow perched on Cú Chulainn’s shoulder in the statue by Oliver Sheppard in the GPO, is also a character in this play.
Dusk explores a provocative correlation between Irish myth and contemporary reality as unseen influences, which lie beneath the surface of our everyday world, manifest themselves.
