A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings

No longer available

Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre

Family & Kids

For lovers of exquisite, beautifully crafted theatre, a magical realist gem inspired by legendary novelist Gabriel García Márquez’s darkly comic fairy tale. 

In a kitchen, in a theatre, two storytellers and their audience discover something remarkable – a very old man with enormous wings – and invite us to speculate who he is. A neighbour believes he’s an angel, a priest claims he’s an imposter.  

Winner of Best Design at the Dublin Fringe, talented theatre maker Dan Colley has created a perfect show for young and old to share, gorgeously formed around music, puppetry and live video, but also thoughtful and emotionally rich in its exploration of human nature.
