The Hound of Chulainn


  • The Crane Theater 2303 Kennedy Street Northeast Minneapolis, MN, 55413 United States (map)

Six Elements Theatre presents a new, collaboratively devised work based on ancient Irish legends. Directed by Nathaniel Nesheim-Case, script by Brian Watson-Jones

The greatest warrior in Ireland's history is fighting against an invading army, alone, while the Morrigan, goddess of battle and death, looks over his shoulder, waiting for him to fall... 
Adapted by the ensemble from the Old Irish epics of the Ulster Cycle, The Hound of Chulainn tells the tale of two youths touched by fate: Deirdre, cursed to bring sorrow to those she loves, and Setanta, the boy with dog-like loyalty who must choose between his duty and his family. Haunting music and deadly duels punctuate a story about the difficulty and the importance of choosing who you believe and who you fight for.
