'A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings' at the Abbey Theatre

6th December 2019

In a kitchen, in a theatre, two storytellers and their audience find something remarkable — a very old man with enormous wings. The wise neighbour woman tells us he’s an angel. The priest says he’s an imposter. Pilgrims flock to see him, hoping to be healed by him, hoping for a gawp. They leave with something different than what they expected.

Manus Halligan and Genevieve Hulme-Beaman star in this darkly beautiful play, which won Best Design at Dublin Fringe Festival 2019.
