Station Island

Shambles Yard

8.00pm – 9.00pm Johnston Building, The Shambles Market

The Home of St. Patrick Festival is delighted to welcome The Lyric Theatre with its rendition of Seamus Heaney’s epic poem Station Island. Heaney’s literary pilgrimage of St. Patrick’s Purgatory, steeped in ritual, memory, and ghostly visions, explores his complex relationship with his homeland, his faith and the past. This dramatic reading of the poem is accompanied by composers and performers Paul Stapleton and Steve Davis who provide a unique improvised live musical interpretation of the text.
