Carnival – a Speigeltent

Founded in 1994, Kabosh is committed to challenging the notion of what theatre is and where it takes place. The company aims to reinvent the ways in which stories are told, commissioning new writing and devising work for site-specific environments and installation.

Kabosh at the Lughnasa International Friel Festival

Kabosh stage a rehearsed reading of Friel's _The Enemy Within_

We are delighted to be taking part in the first ever Lughnasa International Friel festival. Taking place in Donegal from August 20th – 26th and then in Belfast 27th – 31st there are some amazing events lined up.

We will staging a rehearsed reading of The Enemy Within in the beautiful St. Colmcille’s Church, which is located in the picturesque setting of Glencolmcille, and surely there could surely be not more fitting place to bring to life Friel’s imagining of the life of St. Columba (Colmcille).

First staged in 1962, The Enemy Within is Friel’s fictional account of the voluntary exile of Columa. Set in Iona, where Columba lived for 34 years folling his departure from Ireland in 563, it concentrates on the private man, a charismatic, worldly personality who struggled to combine the skills of scholar, bard and ruler with his fearless commitment to his vocation.

Kabosh is delighted to have brought together an exceptional cast of Ulster actors for the reading including Peter Balance, Vincent Higgins, Gerard Jordan, Terence Keeley, Frank McCukser and Lalor Roddy with more to be announced!
