Nine days of miracle and wonder

THE 2019 Galway Theatre Festival will see the city treated to 14 full productions and seven works in development, presented across eight different venues, over nine days in May.

The festival, now in its 11th year, runs from Friday May 3 to Saturday 11, and this year's theme is 'Magic Lies Just Beneath the Surface', with many shows inviting audiences to re-connect with the imagination, a sense of wonder, and a sense of magic.

Among the plays for the festival will be Eternal Youth, by Niamh Ryan, which uses the story of Peter Pan to chronicle the turbulence of growing up and leaving childhood behind. Reality and fantasy collide in Tochmarc Productions' Searlit Ni Gallachoir – Fantasy Ireland, where Searlit (Charlotte ) is on a quest to discover her Irishness.
