A show celebrating great Irish writers, poets and musicians will return to Colour House Theatre next week for one night only.

Journey to the Fifth Province tells a story of Irish language and music drawing on the works of great Irish writers and poets and the Island's rich heritage.

The unique show, which debuted at the Irish Writers Festival London in 2011, comes from Fifth Province productions - a locally-based non-profit arts organisation.

The production company first toured the show in 2011 with the backing of Arts Council England.

It was received well by audiences at the Colour House Theatre and is now set to make its return on April 26. 

The unique show has been described by promoters as "more magical than a play and more personal than a concert". 

The show is led by actor Dónal Cox and Celtic harper Steph West - UK harpist of the year 2009.

Liz Newbery, producer who also helped devise the show with Cox, said: “We’re thrilled to be presenting the show on our home turf, and as part of the Colliers Wood Arts Festival.

“As a Community Interest Company we seek every opportunity to make our work available to new audiences for the arts and participating in the festival is a great opportunity to reach a broad cross-section of the local community.”
