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 imposter. Pilgrims ﬂock to see him, hoping to be healed by him, hoping for a gawp. They leave with something different than what they expected.
We are thrilled to bring this hit show, directed by Dan Colley and starring Genevieve Hulme-Beaman and Manus Halligan, back to life after back-to-back sell-out runs at Riverbank, Project Arts Centre and the Abbey Theatre at the end of 2019. We are delighted to present it to audiences in (nearly!) every corner of Ireland in 2021, before an extensive international tour in 2022 and 2023.
Adapted from Gabriel García Márquez’s Un señor muy viejo con unas alas enormes, this classic piece of magical realism is brought to the stage in search of its beautiful, strange, emotional richness.
