In the Midst of Plenty is a new folk musical set during the height of Ireland’s Great Hunger. The piece traces the stories of friendship, betrayal, eviction, and emigration among families living on the Strokestown estate. The characters’ stories are set amidst the real-life plot to murder Strokestown landlord Denis Mahon. Audiences are presented hard questions about what it meant to survive the most harrowing chapter in Ireland’s history.

Featuring an original score of contemporary acoustic music played by live band, with images of original Famine documentation and artifacts imaginatively woven into sets and costumes.

“An amazing piece. Real and gritty, moments of love, moments of pain, moments of parenting, moments of laughter, moments of revenge and moments of heartbreak. Every last member of the audience rose to their feet spontaneously at the end. A piece with what it means to be human at its very heart.” ~ Caroilín Callery, Director, National Famine Way

“This musical was stunning, brought tears to my eyes. The performances were faultless, the music magical.” ~ Paula (audience member)
