Having honed her storytelling craft at Bray’s much-loved Dry Rain Theatre all those years ago, Lorraine O’Brien knows all about folklore, about campfire tales, and about holding an audience in the palm of her hand.

It’s a set of skills that serves her well in To Shorten The Road, a night of stories and song, with Lorraine playing storyteller and lilter Peg Meg, spinning old yarns deep in the wool of Ireland’s heritage. Joining Peg Meg around the old peat fire is Emma O’Brien, delivering the kind of bawdy ballads and haunting tunes you just wouldn’t expect from such an angelic-looking girl, whilst Mick Heffernan will be exploring Ireland’s great, broken-hearted laments of old.

It’s a night that will warm your soul, like a good Aran sweater. And a luscious Irish coffee.
