A cleaner enters the classroom to empty the bin, distracted by something he sees, there ensues a rollicking story of a highway man, a Robin Hood-like character and master of disguise, Captain McNamara.
Completely unaware that a show will take place, Ballad of a Bandit will have the children on the edge of their seats as they follow the adventure of “The Captain” in a surprise immersive theatre experience for the classroom with music, object animation, clown and expert storytelling by Miquel Barceló.
Inspired by the legendary historical figure Capt. George McNamara of Cong who sided with poor tenants in Penal Law times, Barceló’s reimagining of his story highlights the power of myth and story to give hope to people in a time of need.
