On a remote stretch of bog in Donegal in 1829 a local landlord meets his end after an encounter with the notorious Red Willie. What follows is a hilarious romp full of adventure, romance and innuendo, fast paced and witty with a delectable plot full of twists and turns and playful echoes of some of the classic plays of Irish theatre.
Cast includes Annie Casey, Michael Dennehy, Mandy Donworth, Eilish Heffernan, Liam Houlihan, Max Hennessey, Robert Lee, Jim Lynch, Paul McCarthy, and Sharon O’Carroll.

Tickets €15/€12
