Ar Imeall: The Keening

The Keening’s first show of the weekend will take place in the wonderful áras na ngael as part of the Ar Imeall festival.

Written by Samuel Belton, directed by Samuel Belton and Kealan Ó Fionnáin, Produced by Samuel Belton and Kealan Ó Fionnáin, ‘The Keening’ tells a story heavily based on the famous Irish myth of the Banshee in an exciting and refreshing way to celebrate Irish myth in Irish modern life.

‘The Keening’ is a small theatrical performance in which three actors portray an altered take on the Banshee for the duration of 60 minutes. Within three scenes this play will leave you in awe and shock as a newly-wed Irish couple face the consequences of their actions as they are tormented by a wailing spirit.

The mystery surrounding anything Fae has inspired many writers that have come in contact with it, including W. B. Yeats and his poem; ‘The Stolen Child’. While this story adheres to the old Irish tale it implements new elements to celebrate the creativity that is found in Irish mentality.

This show is supported by Galway City Council & funded through the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media Local Live Performance Programming Scheme Phase 4
