Magpies on the Pylon By Michael Collins

28th May @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Laois Traveller Action Group presents this outstanding play, Magpies on the Pylon, written and performed by Michel Collins, to celebrate Traveller Pride Week. Jim, a Traveller father, is struggling to cope with the suicide of his 23-year-old son, becoming Isolated from other family members and misusing alcohol. To support audiences, following this performance of Magpies on the Pylon, Michael Collins will be joined on stage for a facilitated Q&A and discussion about the sensitive, and some might say taboo, subject of suicide within the Traveller community.
