The Children of Lir

Owl on the Roof

Aoife’s family tree is wilting. The clutter and mess of old memories needs tidying away before her childhood home can be sold. Aoife reconnects with her sister’s widower – Lir. Lir brings the children to the house in an attempt for them to reconnect with their mother and her lineage. However, the house seems to respond to Aoife. When the children act up or push her away, it begins to steal them away one by one.

The Children of Lir is inspired by a dark fairy story from Celtic folk law. Owl in the Roof presents this folk tale with their signature style of original movement, music and surreal storytelling.

This performance is presented as a Work in Progress.
