‘Celbridgians: Blessings and Battles’ is a site-specific promenade performance which explores the people who contributed to making Celbridge what it is today. On Culture Night, it will be performed by 12 young people aged 12-17 years from Straffan Drama Club, who will lend their take on this legacy and what their own legacy might be. The play will be set in the gardens of Kildrought House on Celbridge Main St, starting at the statue of Arthur Guinness and proceeding to the front of Kildrought House. The story of Swift will be performed in a stunning garden adjacent to the river Liffey at the rear of the property. Straffan Drama Club are very grateful to June Stuart, owner of the property, for her generosity.
This performance will be outdoors (weather permitting) and walking from venue to venue is required. This piece of theatre is the final in a series which included ‘The Ghosts of Tea Lane Graveyard’ (2020) and ‘Under Lady Louisa’s Bonnet’ (2021) written and compiled by Geraldine O’Brien.
