‘A rebel Garda chases a local hoodlum into the Underworld’
We’ve all been missing out: That music festival, that cinema date, that theatre show; the exhilaration of live entertainment. Well, Fíbín has the answer. Drive-in to the wild west of Connemara 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.
Fíbín in association with An Taibhdhearc are delighted to provide live entertainment for our ever-growing audience, in a COVID safe, unique setting. We are also grateful to be able to provide work for creative artists, both local and national, during these uncertain times. Fiach is a show where theatre practitioners, from actors, to designers, to set builders, can again collaborate in making a live show for a live audience. Where there’s a will there’s a way. After all – The show must go on!
Commenting on the Production, Artistic Director Philip Doherty said:
‘Fíbín wanted to rise to the challenge in making theatre that is safe, but thrilling for a live audience. We’ve had to think outside the box, and if anything it has pushed us to be inventive, and create new ideas for performance. We are delighted to be able to invite an audience to ‘Fiach’, our Drive-in Theatre show, where people can enjoy the electric experience of watching a story together in a great atmosphere’.
Fiach is the first Irish language Drive-in Drama in Ireland and Fíbín would like to acknowledge the continued support of Ealaín Na Gaeltachta, Foras Na Gaeilge and the Arts Council in funding the staging of Fiach.
