Tóraíocht is a new version of the Irish epic The Pursuit of Diarmuid and Gráinne directed by Irish theatre legend Mikel Murfi. The play is produced by Fíbín, Ireland’s biggest and most active Irish language theatrical company.
The play tells the tale of a love triangle between the legendary warrior Fionn mac Cumhaill, the beautiful princess Gráinne, and her lover Diarmuid. Fionn and his band of warriors, the Fianna, pursue the young lovers after Gráinne slips away from the wedding ceremony arranged for her and Fionn to be with Diarmuid.
Initially previewed in Galway in 2016, Tóraíocht is presented in Irish with English subtitles, and mixes stunning visuals, over-sized props, aerial routines, comedy, and tragedy into a thrilling piece of theatre that tells a tale as old as time.
