Tickets: 18

Featuring a community chorus of old and not-so-old gay men, Silver Stars is a moving and eloquent song-cycle which tells the truly remarkable real-life stories of ordinary men in search of happiness and fulfilment, in a country that was challenged by their very existence.

Based on celebrated singer/songwriter Seán Millar’s interviews with gay men from Dublin to New York, these songs capture tales of love, loss, family, spirituality, defiance and joy.

Staged by the undisputed rising-stars of Irish theatre, Brokentalkers – who were nominated for a 2008 Irish Times Theatre Award for their innovative work – this extraordinary show first performed for four sold-out nights as part of the 2008 Bealtaine Festival, will be Brokentalkers’ debut at the Festival.

Brokentalkers are Associate Artists of Project Arts Centre.

Silver Stars is part of ReViewed – A showcase of successful Irish productions restaged in partnership with Culture Ireland and Irish Theatre Institute.

A pre-show discussion to accompany this production will take place on 6 October at 6.30pm.

Brokentalkers are Associate Artists of Project Arts Centre.

Tickets on sale from 19 August.

Priority booking available from 30 July for Friends of the Festival – prioroty tickets are only available from the Festival Box Office.
