Theatre: Luke at axis:Ballymun

23 - 25 Nov 2022, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm (Past)

axis:Ballymun, 9 Main St, Ballymun, Dublin

Luke is a classic tale of survival, adventure and friendship.

Meet the handsome, if somewhat lived-in looking Luke (voiced by Barry Hopkins) and his sidekick Mairéad (Mairéad Folan). Together they negotiate the perils of the Irish education system, the dance floor, love, and loss. Luke has always been the guy Mairéad could lean on but can their unique bond survive the ultimate challenge?

Luke is a comic yet moving play that asks some tough questions about society, how we perceive ourselves and others.

Luke has been created in partnership with Town Hall Theatre, Galway and axis: Ballymun. NoRopes Theatre Company is supported by the Arts Council and Galway City Council Arts Office.

The development of Luke was supported by the Arts Council’s Arts and Disability Connect Scheme managed by Arts & Disability Ireland, Galway City Council, Galway County Council, Nuns Island Theatre, Galway, Town Hall Theatre, Galway, Dónal Gallagher and Asylum Productions.

Please note: The performance at 2pm on November 25th will be a relaxed performance.
