Branar return to the Irish stage this spring with the aptly titled Bláth / The Flower – This stage adaptation of John Light (& illustrator Lisa Evans) children’s book makes its world premier at Lime Tree Theatre Limerick May 14th as part of Limerick City of Culture and tours to eight venues from 14th may until the end of  July.

Set in a world that has its own decided dull-greyish colour and where plants are no longer present, a young boy finds a magical book that changes his life and outlook forever as he sees flowers for the first time, filling him with immediate joy looking at these wondrous and colourful pictures. This awe inspired feeling is a bitter-sweet mix of emotions as he also feels sad because there are no flowers in the city he lives. However, while making all these many new discoveries, soon later he unearths a packet of flower seeds in a junk shop tucked away in the old part of town. Quickly, he learns how to grow and nurture his own very flower to life as if by magic transforming this strange world he only knows.

Bláth is a non-verbal show that will enchant audiences as they enter a world made entirely of paper designed by artist Maeve Clancy. Combining, puppetry, object theatre and original music score by Colm Mac Con Iomaire (The Frames), Bláth promises to be a show that will be at times apprehensive, wistful, full of amazement and happiness – that remain it’s young audience members’ minds forever.

For audiences aged 7 years & upwards

Running Time – Approx 40 min
