Bag of Queens in the Balor
Thanks to the Balor Theatre and An Grianán Theatre for inviting 2nd and 3rd classes to 'A Bag of Queens-Little John Nee'. The children thoroughly enjoyed the show. Follow up workops will begin in November for two lucky classes.
A Bag of Queens is part of a series of shows featuring the character Sparkplug Callaghan, “showman, songster and storymaker” buys a goat against his better judgement. A neighbour in a retirement home asks him to go to London with a bag of potatoes. Sparkplug can’t leave his poor goat behind so he brings her on a string. This is a lovely show for children of all ages that gives the audience an insight into how we see ourselves and how we think others might see us and the feelings of being different in a new community.
This production by An Grianan Theatre is part financed by the EuropeanUnion's European Regional Development Fund through the EU Programme for Peace and Reconciliation managed for the Special EU Programmes Body by Donegal County Council.
