A new play for young audiences by Paul Curley and Ger Clancy

A scientist.  A parrot.  A lifelong friendship. Grey Matter explores the joyful relationship between a boy and his pet (African Grey) parrot as they  journey through life together, experiencing the highs, the lows, and everything in between.

Performer and writer Paul Curley in collaboration with  designer and puppet-maker Ger Clancy bring this captivating new play for young audiences to life, asking us to consider who we are, and how we get to know ourselves. Directed by Bjarne Sandborg of Teater Refleksion (Denmark) and Ian Cameron (Scotland) along with designers Sarah Jane Shiels, Ciara Fleming and composer Denis Clohessy, Grey Matter promises to be a treat for audiences young and old.

Suitable for 2nd Class and up.

Running time 45 mins.

Grey Matter was originally commissioned by Draíocht and is presented with the support of The Arts Council YPCE Project Award, Riverbank Arts Centre, Creative Hubs – Dublin City Council Arts Office and Meitheal CPS – A Branar Initiative.
