"The production is visually stunning."
Swift, The Irish Times

".Lots of poetic as it is political.a timely and deeply felt meditation on ancient Irish stories - old ways and enmities."
Brogan, Evening Herald

".dramatic, even filmic, sequences surface and disappear in a rhythmic continuum of movement set to John Ryan's propulsive original score."
Moroney, Sunday Times

".Startling in its use of strange images from the violence of contemporary life and of suffering lovers.they weave their 'dizzy dream', spring and fall amid 'the dry bones of the dead'.the words of Yeats ring all too true,.

"If somebody of their race at last would say---'I have forgiven them."
Dutrut, Sunday Business Post

".a brackdrop of deep red studded with inventive and dynamic repertoire of clash and harmony, of conflict and resolution." Hanna, Evening Press

Inspired by the W.B. Yeats Play, "The Dreaming of the Bones";

"Have not old writers said that dizzy dreams can spring from the dry bones of the dead?" Featuring a solid wall of masks, set against the backdrop of the political climate in Ireland.
