Tickets: 20.00-25.00
Show Time: 9.30pm

One of Ireland’s leading theatre-makers, Olwen Fouéré has been intrigued by James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake for many years. Inspired by the extraordinary musicality of the text and by the voice of the river running through it, she has created this powerful new adaptation of Joyce’s famous ‘book of the night’.
A force of constant renewal, the river “Life”, Anna Livia Plurabelle, ALP, becomes a universal call to wake up, surrender the past and confront the betrayals that might lie at the heart of our histories. Together with an exciting creative team, rivverrun will give audiences an opportunity to witness Fouéré’s unique approach to Joyce’s extraordinary ‘sound-dance’.

“Olwen Fouéré achieves a pure theatricality that is rare indeed.”  Fintan O’Toole
There will be a post-show discussion with Olwen Fouéré following the performance on 3 October.
