Thursday 4th September @ 8pm
Bottom Dog Theatre Company present What Happened Bridgie Cleary

An amazing true story of murder and witchcraft in 19th century Ireland

In 1895, Tipperary woman Bridget Cleary was burnt to death by her husband. His defence? She was a fairy, replaced by a changeling. Her crime? Being a sensual independent woman who didn't conform to what was expected of her.

What Happened Bridgie Cleary by Tom MacIntyre is a poetic and dramatic interpretation of this important story. Starring Joanne Ryan (Ros na Rún) who was nominated this year for an Irish Times Theatre Award for her portrayal of Bridgie, alongside well-known actor Myles Breen and Pius McGrath.

With an original soundscape by Stephen Ryan (of the Choice Music Prize nominated band windings) and directed by John Anthony Murphy, this is a must see production from Limerick’s Bottom Dog Theatre company.

Tickets €12/€10
