“Unless there’s a spurt in procreation, we can bid goodbye to the Irish Nation…”The one they forgot to ban (in the 1950s): Sharp, witty, coarse, pithy, vicious, hilarious.
David Marcus’ translation of Brian Merriman’s epic poem is brought to life by Ger Howard in a show that enraptures and resonates with the thoughts, mores and preoccupations of every generation.
