Reviews of Brú Theatre’s Cleite

“A deceptively simple story, told beautifully…backed by stunning sean-nós songs” (Connacht Tribune)

“Through the careful blending of a sweet humour and a deeply affecting loneliness, Cleite crafts a beautiful portrait of old Galway in the heart of the Claddagh.” (An Áit Éile)

Brú Theatre is a newly formed Galway-based company. For more information on Brú go to Brú Theatre
