Having travelled around East Galway, listening to local people and collecting their stories and anecdotes, this wonderful site-specific musical, Beyond the End of the Road will explore rural life and will be performed over the weekend of the Shorelines Arts Festival in September 2020.

Watch as a storytelling rabble weave an autumn tale with the many residents of Portumna and neighbouring towns, focusing on their loves, their losses and their deepest secrets.

Inspired by traditional music, Beyond the End of the Road will be performed by a professional cast of actors and musicians, with special appearances and involvement from local performers and community.

The award-winning production premiered in Hexham Auction Mart, North East England in 2017 before touring village halls across Northumberland and Durham in 2017 and 2018. Original script by Laura Lindow, directed by Cinzia Hardy, designed by Imogen Cloët.
