This new original play based on the ancient Irish epic Táin Bó Cuailnge, or ‘the Cattle Raid of Cooley’, is a blend of text, movement, dance, and music, telling one of the oldest Irish stories not through the mouths of the men, but through the eyes and body of the great woman of the story: the warrior Queen Maeve, so often the villain, recast as the flawed heroine done a disservice by history.

This is an unfunded production working on a profit-share model. It may be possible, however, to cover all reasonable travel expenses, food, as well as provide accommodation for rehearsals and the run if required.

Please send your application in English only (and include a link to your showreel if you have one).
