Borris Vocational School
TRIP TO IRISH PLAY
On Tuesday last, Leaving Cert Irish students travelled to the Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny to see Fibin's production of 'An Triail' by Mairéad Ní Ghráda.
This play is on the Leaving Cert Higher level Syllabus and Fibin's production was excellent. The popular puppeteers are back with their nationwide tour for schools, particularly for Leaving Certificate Curriculum.
Fibín used puppets, masks, high entertainment and engaging visuals to bring a seemingly outdated plot into the context of our modern society, Fíbín seek to address issues highlighted by both teachers and students alike. Any difficulties in relating to the characters as the drama unfolded were banished, through the use of multi-media techniques.
This was a classic, snappy, and at times hilarious, Fibín production. The feedback from the students was extremely positive and they clearly enjoyed this performance.
