In the Midst of Plenty
'In the Midst of Plenty' is a new folk musical touring Ireland in 2023. The show features an original contemporary folk score performed by some of Ireland's best-loved actors and musicians, including Tipperary native Mary Claire Ryan, seen recently in the acclaimed film The Banshees of Inisherin.
The show traces the story of the so-called "Missing 1490" who fled Strokestown at the height of the Great Hunger as part of their landlord's forced emigration scheme. After debuting to rave reviews and sold-out audiences in 2022, the show is touring with the support of the National Famine Way and the Irish Heritage Trust.
Tipperary performance is made possible by the Tipperary County Council Festivals and Events Grant. Written by Amy Day, directed by Anne-Marie O'Sullivan, and produced by Roscommon-based Enchanted Croi Theatre.
