Award winning Irish theater plays Oslo for one night only
Just back from New York with his Edinburgh 2015 hit ‘Little Thing Big Thing’ Irrgrønn productions is delighted to bring Donal O’Kelly and his solo show ‘Fionnuala’ to Oslo on the 19th of Nov 2015.
The play is of particular relevance to an Norwegian audience as it explores the consequences of the installation of a gas pipeline by Shell in the centre of a rural community in the West of Ireland.
