Shaking the Tale is An Grianán Theatre’s co-production with Parrabbola (UK) of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale.
A play, live music, a garden party, a feast and even a ferry crossing for the Inishowen performances! This promises to be a memorable experience for all involved.
The Winter’s Tale will be a large scale, immersive production which will cross the borders, the traditions and the waters of the North West.
Our Letterkenny performances will take place in Ballymacool Town Park (Fri 19 to Sun 21 July) while our Inishowen performances (Tues 23 & Wed 24 July) will take place either side of the Foyle with the show including a ferry ride from Greencastle to Magilligan and back.
The Winter’s Tale tells the story of two kingdoms divided by an ocean, Sicilia and Bohemia; two kings, raised together, but at odds without reason, a wronged queen, a lost princess, prison sentences, tragic deaths, a bear and ocean voyages.
Shaking the Tale is part of Shaking the Walls, a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. The project is led by Gdański Teatr Szekspirowski (Poland), the other partners are Parrabbola (UK), Cooltour Ostrava (Czech Republic) and Ratatam (Iceland). As well as Creative Europe, our co-funders for Shaking the Tale include the Donegal County Council, Arts Council of Ireland and the Earagail Arts Festival.
