Drive-in to the wild west of Galway and encounter a live show that will take you on a joy-ride of comedy, drama and suspense. With the atmosphere of a rock concert, the magic of the silver screen and the intimacy of a radio play, FIACH will have you on the edge of your car seat. It's everything you've been missing.

Starring IFFL Award winning Fionnuala Flaherty and IFTA Award winning Dara Devaney, FIACH tells the story of a rebel garda chasing a local hoodlum into the Underworld. FIACH is Philip Doherty’s latest production, since winning the top awards of ‘Best Irish Film’ and ‘Best Irish First Feature’ in the Galway Film Fleadh, with his feature film Redemption of a Rogue.

‘Even if we were living through ordinary times, Fiach would be a terrific theatrical experience. In a time of Covid-19, it’s more than that.’ Judy Murphy, Connacht Tribune

Extraordinary… an exceptional night… Janice De Broithe Stage Door live

FIACH is the first Irish language Drive-in Drama in Ireland and Fíbín would like to acknowledge the support of Galway City Council and The Black Box Theatre for their as well as the continued support of Ealaín Na Gaeltachta, Foras Na Gaeilge and the Arts Council in funding the staging of FIACH.

Táimid ar an mbóthar arís!!! De bharr an éilimh, tá ríméad ar Fíbín, i gcomhpháirt leis An Taibhdhearc a fhógairt athléirú ar an dráma FIACH le Philip Doherty. Ina dhiaidh an seó a bheith díolta amach i gConamara, tá Fibín ag tógáil FIACH ar an bhóthar. Bhí éileamh mór ar an seó i ndiaidh dó bheith díolta amach i gConamara thar thréimhse 10 lá agus is ar an gcúis sin atá Fíbín ag tabhairt faoin gcamchuairt.

Tiomáin chuig fiántas na Gaillimhe agus bí i láthair ag seó beo a thabharfaidh ar aistear grinn, drámaíochta agus iontais tú. Beidh do chroí i do bhéal ag FIACH agus an t-atmaisféar céanna agus a bheadh ag ceolchoirm rac-cheoil ann, tú faoi gheasa ag draíocht na scannánaíochta agus ag dlúthchaidreamh an dráma raidió. Gach rud a d’airigh tú uait le tamall...beidh sé ann.

Siad na haisteoirí iomráiteacha Fionnuala Flaherty, buaiteoir gradam IFFL, agus Dara Devaney, buaiteoir gradam IFTA, a ghlacfaidh príomhróil an dráma agus a léireoidh scéal an gharda reibiliúnach atá sa tóir ar mhaistín áitiúil agus a leanann isteach sa domhan thíos é. Is é FIACH an léiriú is deireanaí ó Stiúrthóir Ealaíne Fíbín, Philip Doherty, atá tar éis na gradaim ‘Best Irish Film’ agus ‘Best Irish First Feature’ a bhuachan ag an Galway Film Fleadh, lena scannán Redemption of a Rogue.

Is é FIACH an chéad dráma drive-in Gaeilge in Éirinn agus ba mhaith le Fíbín aitheantas a thabhairt do thacaíocht Comhairle Cathrach na Gallimhe agus amharclann an Black Box chomh maith le tacaíocht leanúnach Ealaín na Gaeltachta, Foras na Gaeilge agus an Chomhairle Ealaíon agus FIACH á stáitsiú.
