A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings

Tickets: 8-12
Show Time: Various

Preview: 11am, 7 Sept, €8
In a kitchen, in a theatre, two storytellers and their audience find something remarkable — a very old man with enormous wings. The wise neighbour woman tells us he’s an angel. The priest says he’s an imposter. Pilgrims flock to see him, hoping to be healed by him, hoping for a gawp. They leave with something different than what they expected.
Adapted from Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Un señor muy viejo con unas alas enormes, Collapsing Horse bring this classic piece of magical realism to the stage in search of its beautiful, strange, emotional richness.
Programmed as part Young Radicals, bringing you a whole host of shows that have been made especially for young people.


Ages: 8-80
Duration: 45 mins

Developed as part of Theatre Artist in Residency at Riverbank Arts Centre, Kildare.
