A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings

View map & Directions
10 - 28 December 2019

In a kitchen, in a theatre, two storytellers and their audience find something remarkable — a very old man with enormous wings. The wise neighbour woman tells us he’s an angel. The priest says he’s an imposter. Pilgrims flock to see him, hoping to be healed by him, hoping for a gawp. They leave with something different than what they expected.

Adapted from Gabriel García Márquez’s Un señor muy viejo con unas alas enormes, Collapsing Horse bring this classic piece of magical realism to the stage in search of its beautiful, strange, emotional richness.

For children 8+ and adults of all ages.

Prices range from €10 to €18
