The Táin was our main theme for 2008.
Raders of the Lost Art – stage play
No pun intended!
Raders of the Lost Art was written and directed by Mick Egan. Mick worked with the group through the stories of The Táin. The show was performed in the Project Arts Centre, Axis in Ballymun, Ballyfermot Community Centre, the Pavilion in Dún Laoghaire, and Draíocht in Blanchardstown. This was the first time RADE brought one of their plays on tour.
Raders of the Táin – Play
Bringing old Irish Myth to the Stage
Using Thomas Kinsella’s Tain Bó Cuailgne, wirter/director Mick Egan transformed this legendary tale from early Irish history to create a funny and engaging stage play. The production premiered in The Project Arts Centre and later played in numerous venues throughout Dublin including Axis Theatre Ballymun, Draiocht Blanchardstown, Pavilion Dun Laoghaire and Ballyfermot Community Centre to name a few.
RADEr’s designed and created the props, set and costumes for this production.
