We were delighted to be invited back to the fantastic Bealtaine Festival in 2011, this time performing at Cork Opera House. A Story To Call My Own, which has been touring Wales this year, travelled across the waters and met with a wonderful response from the Irish audience. Our after show discussion confirmed our growing belief in the universal nature of the stories we tell. People in the audience who had grown up in America, South Africa and all over Ireland shared the connections they made with the themes of childhood poverty, racial prejudice and the search for identity and belonging.
It was a very special visit and many thanks to Dominic and all at Bealtaine for making it happen. Also a special thanks to Gwanwyn, Wales’ festival of arts for older people for generously supporting the performance.
