“Shall we bake bread together and churn some butter, and talk about things that really matter?” asks Manchán Magan, the presenter of the 70-minute bilingual show, Arán & Im, which explores what makes Irish so unique and potent. “What’s the word for the lonesomeness of a cow bereft of her calf? Or, for the sound horses make when they meet after an absence? To what extent is the language embedded in the Otherworld?” Join Manchán as he bakes bread and churns butter and reveals the link between sourdough and the transformational power of Irish.

The show is a celebration of language, land and local Irish food, with freshly-baked traditional sourdough bread for the audience to slice and spread with butter they churn themselves from Irish cream. NB: Knowledge of Irish is not required.

Arán & Im had a nationwide tour with the Abbey Theatre in 2018. In Autumn 2019 it toured widely again. In Spring 2022 it toured 16 cities, 13 states and 2 provinces in USA and Canada. It will tour the west coast of North American in 2023.

Written & presented by Manchán Magan. Set by Tom de Paor. Originally produced by the Abbey Theatre. Production assistance from Once Off Productions
