2023 Midwinter Revels:

Emerald Odyssey

It’s a stormy evening in Kinvarra when an out-of-town stranger walks into the middle of the Móirín’s pub and interrupts the community’s celebration of the Winter Solstice. Móirín decides that with enough Irish singing, dancing, story-telling, and perhaps a Mummers Play, they can make their new friend Irish by the time the sun rises on the shortest day. But the stranger has a story of her own to tell.
