BAOITE

Galway International Arts Festival – A fishing family leads a desperate fight to defend their coastal community from the imminent threat of offshore fracking — but as the constant pressure of campaigning mounts, hidden fractures appear in the once–solid clan, as lies, legacies, deceit and ultimate betrayal undermine the family and destroy the community.

Allegiances are torn — a community is split, until a trawler tragedy unites it in grief. But when the truth begins to emerge about what actually happened, our perception of right and wrong is turned on its head.

Baoite is a new Abbey Theatre commission from the writer and director of the multi–award winning TV crime series Corp + Anam Darach Mac Con Iomaire.

Scéinséir dorcha faoi lánúin iascaireachta a bristear ó chéile de bharr ciúnas agus bréaga an phobail agus iad sáite in agóid in aghaidh comhlachta fraiceála mara.

Performed in Irish with English surtitles.
