A modern-day adventure, Star Chasers sees Billy and Dad heading north with just a tent and a box full of Mam’s memories. On the way they pitch their tent, conjure Mam’s stories and quarrel as they seek journey’s end and a new beginning.
Star Chasers is a rich exploration of the relationship between a parent and child and their attempts to come to terms with the shared loss in their lives. One teacher remarked after the play that it is “a beautiful way to deal with a difficult subject.”
Star Chasers is described as a tapestry of music, movement and magical imagery. Some of the images came from Kilkenny schools who were invited to contribute paintings and drawings of three stories that feature in the play. Ages 4+
