Commedia of Errors presents The Tain Friday 2nd October 2015 8pm

Medb, Queen of Connacht, has come to Ulster to steal the Donn Cúailnge, Ulster's legendary Brown Bull. With the men of Ulster sick with the curse, only Cú Chulainn can stop her. It's a shame he hasn't got two braincells to rub together. Luckily his trusty servant stands by his side to save the hero from his own stupidity. With the stupid leading the stupider, in a fight against the idiots, who will prevail? Will the Ulstermen fight off the lurghy? Will the forces of Connacht succeed? Can Cú Chulainn send the marauders home? There's only one way to find out...

This highly expressive, physical Commedia dell'Arte troupe bring their innovative and inclusive theatrical style to The Playhouse fresh from a barnstorming debut at the Festival Jeune Theatre Europeen in Milan, Italy.
