Mara finds herself in an aquarium in the middle of the night, face to face with a pregnant male seahorse, and promptly has an existential crisis.
For the Birds Theatre Company is delighted to be marking International Women’s Day, on 8 March 2019, at The Everyman, Cork, with their critically-acclaimed production, Seahorse.
Created by award-winning stand-up comedian turned writer, Christiane O’Mahony, and dEsigner, Brian Mitchell, Seahorse is a razor-sharp and funny play about the anxiety of being a woman in modern Ireland. Directed by Davey Kelleher, with stunning animation by Janet Grainger, this surreal tale transports audiences to an underwater, radical feminist world of seahorses, where they meet Mara, a woman trying to figure out what she wants in a world of seemingly endless possibilities.
Julie Kelleher, Artistic-Director of The Everyman said:
“I am delighted to welcome Christiane and the For the Birds Theatre Company back to The Everyman this March. They are a much-loved team here and as soon as I read the script I knew Seahorse would be a wonderful show to share with Cork audiences on International Women’s Day. It’s a fun and bold exploration of what it means to be a woman in Ireland today, with plenty of relatable characters!”
Seahorse will run at The Everyman from 6th until 8th March 2019, with a post-show discussion taking place in The Everyman Bar on 6th.
