The Heartland country of the soul is dark and yet, simultaneously is magnesium-bright. Where you can hear the wild voices of the crowd at a cockfight melding into an eerie music, as above it comes the shrill of the cocks crowing at a false dawn.
In this show by Patrick McCabe, with Republic of Telly host Kevin McGahern and a complement of guest musicians including Larry BeauLiz Deery, Paddy Goodwin and Ian Lynch of Lankum, the spirit of this nether-world which defies time and exists in several different dimensions at once, is omnipresent – as are the ghosts of Patrick Kavanagh, Joyce and Daffy Duck. So why not come along, immerse yourself in their world and enjoy this magical Sunday afternoon show?
