Lex Talionis – 4th to 6th October


By Liam Heylin

From their sold out run at the Cork Midsummer Festival and a very successful outing at Dublin Fringe Festival, Wandering Star are back once again with Lex Talionis (A Tale of Vengeance & Feathers) by Liam Heylin.

Hugh’s a rook with chicks comin’. Mooney’s a younger rook whose new friend Max is not what they seem. Dónie’s a magpie, he’s bad news. After a vicious murder, one of them is out for blood. There will be vengeance. That’s what the weird Latin title means – the law of retaliation, an eye for an eye, like.

Wandering Star brings together the creative team of Katrina Foley, Jamie Feehily, and Aoife Clarke and the acting talents of Aisling McCarthy, Sinéad Donnelly, Sinéad McGee and Bláithín MacGabhann. This play contains strong language and some mild violence.

Directed by Katrina Foley.
