Deirdre of the Sorrows
Retold by Giles Abbott

A girl is born, a prophecy is made, and thus begins the story of Deirdre of the Sorrows, one of the greatest tragic heroines of Irish mythology. Her epic story, retold by Giles Abbott, is violent, erotic, funny and tragic, and though it’s feet are in the past (Iron Age in origin) it is a story whose eyes are firmly fixed on the present. Is beauty, for a woman, a blessing or a curse? And if a curse, why? Imagine the story of Helen of Troy, but told from Helen’s perspective. Come and hear one of the greatest stories in mythology told by an award-winning storyteller!

Adults and children 12+.

“Wit, wisdom and a voice like melted chocolate!”
Honor Giles, Word of Mouth, Manchester

“Very cinematic, with a great ability to get under the surface of the metaphor”
David Ambrose, Festival Director, Beyond the Border International Storytelling Festival
