Red Moon date with Dahl and others at Wexford Arts Centre
Red Moon Children's Theatre ensemble has a fun double bill beginning with this age old classic Fionn Mac Cumhaill (presented by the younger children) following the adventures and the drama of life in Celtic times, of the great leader of Fianna of Ireland.
Second on the bill is Roald Dahl's modern classic tale of Matilda as she tries to extract herself from her extremely dysfunctional family at the same time as taking on history's meanest teacher.
Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a child-hating terror of a headmistress.
When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
Not to be missed at Wexford Arts Centre on Thursday, June 23 and Friday, June 24, at 8 p.m.
