A Clonmel Junction Arts Festival and Source Arts Centre co-production written and performed by Cathal Ryan, directed by Jack Reardon, set & costume design by Jack Scullion, lighting design by Eoin Lennon, sound design by Michael Stapleton.

Matty Daly is a young hurler who dreams of making it to his club's senior team. He's feeling the pressure from his mam and dad, his teammates and arch-nemesis Conor Dooley, as well as the people of the village where he lives. Experience the highs of playing and the lows of the WhatsApp group you're not in, this is a tour-de-force performance that electrifies the stage. Told with humour, understanding and love of the sport through the lens of a twenty-something in modern rural Ireland, Pucked is a play that is "A hit with audiences, with “Pucked”... an exploration of  empowered word with strong acting performance" (The Nationalist)

We'll bring PUCKED home to Thurles with a show at co-producer Source Arts Centre on Saturday November 5th - booking here

Group bookings welcome!
