Storytelling with an edge. A mix of personal stories and epic Irish myths. An exploration of love & fear, addiction & healing.

Great hero Fionn McCool cups the spring water in his hands. The wounded man waits at the foot of the hill. A few drops of water from Fionn will cure his wounds & restore him. Fionn thinks of beautiful Grainne & lets the water drain from his fingers.

Growing up in a home with mental health issues & addiction, Sinead likes to think she is amazingly well-adjusted all things considered. A real Daddy’s girl, her father was her hero. Mam is crazy, Dad’s the fun one. But as she grows up & her father relapses they are forced to re-examine the stories they told themselves.

This performance is part of a combiticket option.
