Beyond Words

This event has ended

Online, Sunday 16th May

Bethencourt Productions presents “Beyond Words”: a Mother Tongues special Literary Cabaret online by zoom. Featuring new writing, music and comedy. All performances are live from artists’ homes.

Part of Mother Tongues Festival 2021, celebrating language, multiculturalism, bilingualism, sign language and the Irish language.

Three playwrights of our time, Lesley Conroy, Justin MacGregor and Peter Reid have written original scenes for this show, in which characters are beyond words in awe, in pain, in shock, in disbelief.

Stories ranging from two young boys who sign up in secret during World War II, to a present day couple breaking it off on zoom, to a mother’s guilt at choosing to cremate rather than bury her daughter.

Performed by actors Esosa Ighodaro, Mark Loughran, Pierce McNee, Paul Nugent, Ann Russell and Marcela Salgado. With Fia Rua singing from his latest album Behind the Grey “reflective and personal” (Irish Times). Anna Nugent sings Lin-Manuel Miranda, from the hit musical Hamilton, which explores mainstream history through the music of subcultures. And our regular cabaret artist Rose Lawless, who is never short for words.

With references to Brian Friel’s Translations and Carson McCullers’ The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. Poet of the month to be confirmed. MC Leonor Bethencourt. The show is live on zoom on Sunday May 16th at 6pm.
