About the Event



Thurs 11 May

Big Telly Theatre Company presents

The Faerie Thorn

Directed by Zoë Seaton; Music by Garth MacConaghie

The Ardhowen, Enniskillen 8 pm  £12, concession £11


Based on the book by Jane Talbot, ‘The Faerie Thorn’ will recreate Talbot’s dark, imaginative and bewitching tales, propelling the audience into a world of devilish debts, trysts and trades, broken bargains and unjust trials; of magic, quick-wittedness, hoodwinking and revenge.


The stories inhabit an incredibly vivid and dangerous world controlled by a complex fairy mafia including factions like the memory takers, the time keepers, the bad talkers and trolls, which humans tackle at their peril.


Over the past thirty years, Big Telly have carved a reputation as bold, risk-taking theatre makers, and ‘The Faerie Thorn’ production will be a vibrant, contemporary, physical theatre, incorporating masks, movement and illusion.


‘The Faerie Thorn’ will be witty, dark and wickedly comedic dealing with inexorable human tensions in a way that is shocking and yet terrifyingly familiar.


Please note: this performance contains some strong language and is suitable for 14+ years.
