Talking about ‘The Messenger’ with Barnstorm Theatre Company

Barnstorm Theatre Company’s latest production for children (and families alike) looks at the 1916 Rising through the eyes of a ten-year old child.

In The Messenger, Christy ‘Bullet’ Brady is a boy with a mission. He wants to be the fastest runner in the street. When the Easter Rising kicks off, revolution is the last thing on Christy’s mind. He’s just carrying a message for his Ma. It turns out to be just the first of many messages he carries that week…

Listen back to the chat with in studio with some of the cast and crew of The Messenger.

School shows commence 16 November with a Gala performance at 7.30pm on Friday this week, along with an additional family show on Saturday night at 7.30pm. For more, see
