IT'S A CULTURAL THING OR IS IT, A TRAVELLER IN PROGRESS

Dates: 26 May - 31 May

Tickets: €18

Based on the life experiences of Michael Collins, a Traveller, who remembers his childhood through innocent eyes. The performance sees Michael going from living in the fields of Kilbeggan in a barrel top wagon to living in a tent at the top of Prosperous Hill. He describes his family’s journey to Dublin to join the other Travellers who started the exodus to Dublin as a result of changes in the social welfare system and the end of the traditional way of life. During the course of the performance he has to convince his daughter to stay on in school. He takes us through his school days and his first real encounter with settled people. It is a fast paced sequence of stories that are a microcosm of the history of the Traveller community over the past 40 years. ‘Entertaining, enriching and provocative ‘
