The Wonders of the Wake with Kevin Toolis and Pauline Scanlon

  • The Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre 9 Market Street Armagh, Northern Ireland, BT61 7BW United Kingdom (map)

Admission: £14 | BOOK HERE

The Wonders of the Wake is a totally unique Irish Trad Arts show that in laughter, song, keening and haunting Gaelic laments celebrates the ancient rite of the Irish Wake.

The hauntingly beautiful Mná Caointe, keening singers, will bring a tear to your eye and shiver in your spine and take you on a 90 minute magical adventure to the best Irish wake you could ever experience. Homer and Yeats and the joys of 2000-year old bardic poetry arise again on stage.

The Wonders of the Wake is an artistic collaboration between the acclaimed writer of My Father's Wake: How the Irish Teach Us to Live, Love and Die, Kevin Toolis, and the beloved Irish singer Pauline Scanlon.
