A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings – Gabriel García Márquez's darkly comic tale, brought to the stage for children and adults to share.

In a kitchen, in a theatre, two storytellers and their audience find something remarkable — a very old man with enormous wings. The wise neighbour woman tells us he's an angel. The priest says he's an impostor. Pilgrims flock to see him, hoping to be healed by him, hoping for a gawp. They leave with something different than what they expected.

Adapted from Gabriel García Márquez's Un Señor Muy Viejo con Unas Alas Enormes, Collapsing Horse bring this classic piece of magical realism to the stage in search of its beautiful, strange, emotional richness.

Winner – Best Design at Dublin Fringe Festival 2019.
★★★★ – “a model of ingenuity”The Irish Times.
★★★★ – “There is as much for adults to enjoy about Collapsing Horse's family-friendly fable as there is for children”Sunday Business Post.
★★★★ – “Watch the sublime production take flight, only after showing what really matters.”Musings In Intermissions.
