From the National Leprechaun Museum comes a new immersive, theatrical tour through the Otherworld in Mary’s Abbey this Hallowe’en.

Following the year on year sell out success of Dark Land, twisted tales from the darker side of Ireland, National Leprechaun Museum have announced a new immersive Samhain experience - veiled.

veiled will take you on an immersive, site specific journey through the Otherworld in Old Mary’s Abbey this Hallowe’en. Guided by a spirit older than the city you will be taken into the darkest Irish tales, the ones long hidden from sight. Something is rotting, it has been festering for a long time.

veiled opens at St. Mary's Abbey on Capel Street on 24th October with nightly shows running until 2nd November at 19:00 & 20:15. Tickets priced €15 are on sale now from leprechaunmuseum.ie. Meet at the National Leprechaun Museum ten minutes before your tour time. Book early to avoid disappointment as veiled is a site-specific performance with a strictly limited capacity.

“The veil is thinning, its membrane tears. A wound in time, thrashing through they come seething, festering spirits. They have arrived.”

veiled is directed by Alice Bellamy with an ensemble cast.

About the production setting:
veiled is an immersive and unseated production. Each performance requires you to move through the narrative and settings. Due to the historic nature of the site, veiled regrettably has limited accessibility, and is not wheelchair accessible.

Please note that veiled is strictly for adults aged 18+. Performance contains blood, gore, body horror, and entrapment, with discussion of death, sexism, mutilation and kidnapping. Loud noises, confined spaces, a locked door, representation of a large serpent. Bright and flashing lights.
