Beings of the Other World

Break-Away Hallowe’en Spectacular in the Crypt of Christchurch Cathedral

The Break-Away Project, in association with Foras na Gaeilge, proudly presented ‘Beings of the Other World – Break-Away Hallowe’en Spectacular’ in the Crypt of Christchurch Cathedral, Dublin on Hallowe’en Night 2014.

This special one-night-only event brought guests into the realms of the Other World, where they encountered the Banshee and other Creatures of the Night, followed by ‘Lusmór’, a musical theatre experience unlike any other.

Based on the Legend of Knockgrafton, Lusmór is a tale of luck and misfortune, of love lost and gained, of madness and bravery… and most of all, the dangers of interfering with Beings of the Other World. Should guests survive their rendezvous with the Other Folk, they will enjoy a wine Reception with piano accompaniment from the Phantom of the Crypt.

Cast include Michael Heavey, Helena Byrne, Evelyn Shaw, Rory Corcoran, Hilary Bowen-Walsh, Joe McCarthy & Nathalie Clement.

Directed by Karen Davidson Perrins with Musical Director Josh Johnston.
Script adapted from T. Crofton Croker’s ‘Legend of KnockGrafton’ by Derek Masterson, Joseph Zettelmaier and Helena Byrne, with music by Daniel Forde and Helena Byrne.
Translations by Colm O Snodaigh & Rossa O Snodaigh.
Ghoulish Make-Up by Mags Dziadura.
