Sacrifice at Easter

Cork Midsummer Festival is delighted to announce that Corcadorca Theatre Company will present their upcoming site-specific production ofSacrifice at Easter by Pat McCabe as part of this year’s festival.

In what will be one of their largest site-specific shows since 2008, Corcadorca will stage Sacrifice at Easter by Pat McCabe at Elizabeth Fort on Barrack Street. Written in response to the 1916 centenary, Sacrifice at Easter is a creative collaboration between director, Pat Kiernan; renowned composer, Mel Mercier; and McCabe, who wrote ‘Breakfast on Pluto’ and ‘The Butcher Boy’.

Please note this is a promenade / standing performance and comfortable footwear is advised. Also, as it will take place outdoors, we recommend you dress appropriately for our unpredictable summer weather.
