Where the River Farset joins the mouth of the Lagan
Rests the chapel of the sandy ford
An inhospitable place for a city
Yet in 1613 a town charter is granted
400 years on as the full moon rises six spirits congregate to offer a haunting lament
This ritualistic drama charts the history of this ever-changing city, giving voice to the forgotten, celebrating personal endurance and presenting a refrain for Baêl Feirste.
Kabosh brings you the world premiere of a new play by Carlo Gabler with original music by Neil Martin, performed in the historical setting of St. George’s Church as part of its bicentenary celebrations.
This place, so in-
By day, becomes
By night, bathed by
The moon’s kind light –
Playwright Carlo Gabler
Composer Neil Martin
Director Paula McFetridge
Cast: Bernadette Brown, Maria Connolly, Roisin Gallagher, Laura Hughes, Carol Moore and Kerri Quinn.
