Early work on Journey - the development phase.  We've come a long way!

You may not know it but the community in Crawley, West Sussex, played a leading role in the creation of Journey to the Fifth Province, the show that has been our signature piece of work.  The production has gone from strength to strength touring and delighting audiences across the country.  Now, coming full circle, the acclaimed and much loved show will play at  The Hawth Studio on Sat 14 November, 7.45pm.  The occasion will be a special one because it will complete a story - and a journey - begun in Crawley back in 2004.

An early version of the show, called Come Sit By My Fire, started life at the first ever Crawley Fleadh.  A capacity audience responded with enthusiasm and heart-felt applause.  A senior gentleman's summing-up inspired Dónal to develop the show: "We should have more of this!"

Since those small beginnings the show has toured to 30 destinations - theatres, arts centres and community venues, book festivals and UK Irish festivals.  The performance at the Hawth will be presented as a Crawley Fleadh event sponsored by the Celtic and Irish Cultural Society.

Tickets £10 (£7 Hawth Friends)
