In the Midst of Plenty

“In the Midst of Plenty” is a new folk musical set during the height of Ireland’s Great Hunger. The show is embarking on an Irish tour in 2023 after recently debuting to glowing reviews among sell-out crowds in Strokestown Park and the Roscommon Arts Centre. The piece traces the stories of friendship, betrayal, eviction, and emigration among families living on the Strokestown estate.
