Emigration Road
Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum and Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute are proud to co-sponsor the dramatic reading of “Emigration Road” on April 7 at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Emigration Road is the third “play for voices” produced by Galway’s Curlew Theatre Company. Each play is devised and directed by Eamon Grennan, and performed by Tegolin Knowland and Sean Coyne.

Emigration has been a constant throughout much of Irish history, and this drama sketches out the consequences of leaving “home” to make one’s way elsewhere. Emigration Road wanders about historically and geographically in its references, and explores emigration from various angles.

This program will be offered twice on Tuesday, April 7. The first performance will be held at 3 p.m.and the second performance will be held at 6 p.m. Space is limited for both performances. Tickets are $10 for the general public, and free for students. All tickets must be purchased or reserved in advance. Click here to reserve your tickets.
