Gleeson and Heffernan are part of acclaimed Irish theatre company 'Collapsing Horse' and brought the UK production to Ireland as part of curatorial project ILLUSION.

"The guys behind this show - Les Enfants Terrible - have a similar theatrical style to our own company," Gleeson explained. "They made a big impact on us when we saw them perform five years ago so we wanted to bring the show here."

Inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe and Alfred Hitchcock ‘Ernest and the Pale Moon’ tells the story of Ernest; a loner who spends his days watching a young woman who lives in the apartment opposite him.

When he sees her with another man Ernest is thrown into a jealous rage and driven to murder.

'Collapsing Horse' will head over to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival later this summer with their two theatre shows 'Human Child' and 'Bears in Space'.

"Bringing the show over was a nice project to work on before the madness of rehearsals kicks in," Heffernan added.
