Update: Due to continuing Covid-19 restrictions, the presentation of Paper Boat has been postponed. This performance will be rescheduled at a future date when conditions permit.
On midsummer’s eve, a young homeless man, and a mysterious mother and a child arrive in St. Nicholas’ Church to claim sanctuary from very different threats.
But an army from the past is gathering outside the doors, threatening to repeat the destruction of Galway perpetrated by Cromwell’s army centuries ago. Now the people of Galway are being asked to risk their own safety to protect the strangers who have come seeking their aid, and the leaders of the fourteen tribes must decide.
Join a professional cast of singers and musicians enhanced by children and singers of Galway and find out what the tribes decide.
