The Market Place Theatre is delighted to welcome back Big Telly Theatre Company following their previous productions here including ‘The Colleen Bawn’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘The Country Boy’, ‘Puckoon’ and ‘One Sandwich Short Of A Genius’.

Based on the book by Jane Talbot, ‘The Faerie Thorn’ will recreate Talbot’s dark, imaginative and bewitching tales, propelling the audience into a world of devilish debts, trysts and trades, broken bargains and unjust trials; of magic, quick-wittedness, hoodwinking and revenge. The stories inhabit an incredibly vivid and dangerous world controlled by a complex fairy mafia including factions like the memory takers, the time keepers, the bad talkers and trolls, which humans tackle at their peril. Witty, dark and wickedly comedy dealing with inexorable human tensions in a way that is shocking and yet terrifyingly familiar.

‘A bewitching set of faerie tales for adults. Intriguing, intelligent’ IRISH EXAMINER
