'In the Midst of Plenty,' a new folk musical
'In the Midst of Plenty' is a soaring new work of musical theatre from Roscommon-based Enchanted Croí Theatre, touring Ireland in May, June, and July 2023. Exploring themes of Irish womanhood, family, community, and rebellion, this production peels back the curtain of antiquity surrounding the Great Hunger, and presents an achingly beautiful story of love and survival in all of its bare, heartfelt authenticity. With book and music by singer-songwriter Amy Day and artistic direction by Anne-Marie O'Sullivan, the show sold out all its debut performances in 2022, receiving glowing reviews. The nationwide tour will include performances in Mullingar, Cavan, Longford, Galway, Westport, Sligo, Ballybofey, Ballyshannon, Derry/Londonderry, Roscommon, Carlow, Ballyduff, Tipperary, and Dublin, made possible by support from the National Famine Way, the Irish Heritage Trust, Roscommon County Council, Creative Ireland, Sliabh Bawn Community Benefit Fund, the Ireland Funds, and Tipperary County Council.
