Manus Halligan is currently performing in A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings at the Summerhall, Main Hall, Edinburgh Fest. This wonderful show is receiving 4 and 5 Star reviews for its production taking place throughout the month of August.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s darkly comic tale brought to the stage for children and adults to share. In a kitchen of a theatre, two storytellers and their audience find something remarkable – a very old man with enormous wings. Inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Un Senor Muy Viejo Con Unas Alas Enormes, this classic piece of magic realism is brought to the stage with beautiful, strange, emotional richness. ‘A model of ingenuity’ **** (Irish Times). ‘Perfection’ ***** (TheArtsReview.com). Winner of Best Design at Dublin Fringe Festival 2019. Funded by Culture Ireland.
