Really sharp, funny, poignant show for people who like theatre stripped down to character and dialogue. Loved the fact that it was a breezy 75 minutes with no intermission; every moment had impact.

The writing is brilliant and the actors did a magnificent job with difficult roles. The cadence of the language is mesmerizing -- a memorable experience.

Characters were exquisitely developed with precise timing, inflection and charm. The comedy opened the audience up to the theme and its logical development. Terrific writing, acting and staging. Heartfelt and entertaining.

Tir Na Theatre Company Presents Trad

Written by Mark Doherty

Directed by Carmel O’Reilly

Featuring Nancy Carroll, Colin Hamell and Billy Meleady

A fable about the value of tradition, Trad is the hilarious yet touching tale of 100-year-old Thomas and his improbably ancient father, Da. When Thomas reveals that he once fathered a son in a long-ago fling, the pair set off across the Irish countryside with little more than a hobble and a limp to help them on their search for the last remaining link in the family line. A smash hit in Ireland’s Galway Arts Festival.
