Star of the Sea at Backstage

Star of the Sea

“A lesson in theatre magic … captures an extraordinary and devastating story” Irish Daily Mail

In the winter of 1847 the famine ship Star of the Sea sets sail for the Promised Land. Among the passengers are a maidservant, a ruined lord, and a ruthless murderer. Moving between the wild landscape of Connemara, grimy London streets, and the claustrophobic confines of the famine ship, this sweeping production charts the lives of the three characters, from the childhoods that shaped them to their final, fateful journey.

Told through Moonfish’s signature style of bi-lingual theatre, the journey comes to life as six performers use projection, physicality, live sound effects and music to conjure the worlds of the characters on a bare stage.

Based on the best-selling novel by Joseph O’Connor, and a sell-out hit of the Galway International Arts Festival, this unmissable piece of Irish theatre is back by popular demand.
