The Odyssey Tour: Echoes of Ireland’s Cultural Voices
1 October 2022 @ 19:00 - 20:00€25
The National Famine Museum, Strokestown Park, is proud to present this bespoke event commissioned and co-produced with some of Ireland’s most renowned actors and performers.
Savour a guided theatrical, literary and musical feast of live performances through Strokestown Park House.
What do Sean O Casey’s Juno and the Paycock, Patrick Kavanagh’s Tarry Flynn, James Joyce’s Ulysses and the local Seanachie, have in common? These storytellers all reflected and challenged Irish life in the early 1900’s through times of great change and political unrest.
This theatrical guided tour will be led by Lucy Brennan Shiel and features live performances by renowned Irish actors Gary Lydon (soon to appear in Martin McDonagh’s new film The Banshees of Inisherin) and Conor Lambert (Ripper Street, The Tudors) along with Conor Hamill (soon to appear in, In the Land of Saints and Sinners & Ann) along with some very special guest performers on the night.
Enjoy a complimentary fire-side glass of prosecco and unwind in this not-to-be-missed event.
Strokestown Park would like to acknowledge the kind permission of the Trustees of the Estate of the late Katherine B. Kavanagh, through the Jonathan Williams Literary Agency for Tarry Flynn to be included in this programme.
This bespoke event has been proudly commissioned by Strokestown Park in partnership with Emma Brennan, producer and director.
