USA: Margaret Pearse & Company


Locations: Performances in Dublin and U.S. during the Month of January 2018. 

Under the coordination of Kathleen Warner Yeates company, Flying Turtle Productions, we will facilitate simultaneous performance productions in Dublin and the U.S. which will be created by secondary school students. In Dublin, it will be Larkin College with Michelle Fallon and in the U.S. the Abington Friends School with Megan Bellwoar Hollinger. Our producing theatre partner in the U.S. will be the Arden Theatre Company, Philadelphia. The schools will be creating a performance based on the life of an actual local woman from history, and will be exchanging videos of their progress with their counterpart in the other country. Final performance in early 2018. See our weblink on the Flying Turtle Productions website for more up to date details. Illumination will take place with images of Margaret Pearse at the Ireland Institute during the festival.
