Angels in the Park, a powerful, funny and inspiring series of five 10-minute plays set and performed in a park, is back by popular demand after charming audiences in famous parks and gardens in Ireland, London and Paris since 2013. Shiva Productions are delighted to perform this show in the west of Ireland for the first time. Described as “a beautiful piece of work” these skilfully crafted tiny plays, exploring themes of mortality, family and the human need to connect, were carefully selected and are written by new emerging Irish talent. They feature some well-known and talented actors including veteran Irish actor Des Nealon (Red Rock, Bachelor’s Walk), Fair City Actors Margaret Toomey and Charleigh Bailey, Red Rock actor Geraldine McAlinden, Rob Harrington, Muireann Darcy, and Roscommon native Michael Heavey. The plays are directed and produced by Aoibhinn Marie Gilroy, a Dubliner whose mother hails from Ballintober.
The show will go on come rain or shine, so pack a brolly! Audiences are advised to bring a light portable chair, picnic rug or cushion as there will be no seating. Audiences will be led to different locations on the grounds for a duration of approximately 1 hour 10 minutes. Not suitable for young children. Some strong language in parts. Parental guidance advised
