Event description
A unique evening of theatre and food inspired by Heaney. Presented by Portstewart's own Paula McIntyre, Big Telly & Flowerfield Arts Centre

About this Event

An exclusive evening of entertainment, theatre and a tasting menu of food, inspired by the poetry of Heaney and hosted by Portstewart neighbors Big Telly, chef, presenter and writer Paula McIntyre MBE and Flowerfield Arts Centre

A unique culinary and theatrical journey. A winter’s evening performance of home-grown warmth exploring the sensual connections between taste, smell, memory and storytelling.

The theatre performance style is sparse, intimate and evocative – the audience ‘sharing’ delicious light bites prepared by Paula on the evening - alongside conversation and enjoyment of Heaney’s extraordinary depictions of landscape, belonging, the domestic and the epic.

Two short plays directed by Zoe from Big Telly, form the literary backbone of this unique event. Originally from the 2007 Big Telly production of ‘Bog People’, writer Nicola McCartney’s scripts weave intricate portrayals of the humanity and the landscape so beautifully and painfully captured by Heaney’s work.

Along with Paula’s culinary showmanship celebrating the unique Northern Irish provenance of soda bread, seaweed butter and more, Across the Threshold is an entertaining display for all the senses.

Don’t miss this special one-off celebration event of Northern Irish food, literature and heritage - and a warming sloe gin on arrival, of course.

Ticket price £20 - includes theatre, readings and tasters of freshly prepared food and drink to enjoy and share. (not full menu)
