On March 15th (10.30am and 12pm) the Source Arts Centre, Thurles will feature Tromluí Phinocchio (Pinocchio – a Nightmare) - this is the dark and sometimes disturbing story of a young boy’s journey through a dangerous adult world. Pinocchio is a young teenager; a wooden boy who doesn’t feel like he belongs.
The show won the title of ‘Best Irish Language Show of 2012’ in The Irish Times and was also named one of the ‘Top 10 Theatre Productions of 2012’ by Entertainment.ie.
After having such positive reactions at the Dublin Fringe Festival and during the Smock Alley AntiPanto run, the show is back on the road for Bliain na Gaeilge and will be staged around the country during Seachtain na Gaeilge 2013.
