W.B. Yeats’ play ‘On Baile’s Strand’ on Streedagh Beach Sligo

June 21, 2015 @ 2:45 pm

This June 21st, Blue Raincoat Theatre Company take to the great outdoors once again to perform a W.B. Yeats’ play ‘On Baile’s Strand’, based on Irish legends Cuchulain and King Concobar.

Conchobhar, King of Ulster, fearful of Cúchulainn’s unruly temper makes him swear an  oath of obedience. Cúchulainn, then obliged to Conchobhar, accepts the challenge from a warrior from Aoife’s country. Victorious in battle, Cúchulainn returns to Conchobhar’s castle where the identity of the warrior is revealed.

Regarded as one of Yeats most accessible and dramatic plays this promises to be an exciting theatrical event presented outdoors on Streedagh Beach on Sunday June 21st at 1pm.
