The Curious Ensemble’s production of Maura Laverty – This Was Your Life,  premiered in The Viking Theatre for two weeks in September 2019. It played to full houses and was a popular and critical success. (See press quotes on the "About" page). The show, which stars actors Bairbre Ní Chaoimh and Malachy Mc Kenna and features live cooking on stage, will tour nationally in Spring 2020. (Photos by Futoshi Sakauchi).
