A STORY OF COURAGE AND SURVIVAL IN THE TIME OF THE GREAT IRISH FAMINE
'In the Midst of Plenty' is a soaring new work of musical theatre written by Amy Day, directed by Anne-Marie O'Sullivan, and produced by Roscommon-based Enchanted Croí Theatre. Exploring themes of Irish womanhood, family, community, and rebellion, the show features a cast of some of Ireland's best-loved actors and musicians and a live folk band onstage, and presents an achingly beautiful story of love and survival in all of its bare, heartfelt authenticity.
The show has spent the summer of 2023 on a 19-show nationwide tour of Ireland, selling out multiple venues and receiving nightly standing ovations and rave audience reviews. The nationwide tour was made possible by support from the National Famine Way, the Irish Heritage Trust, Roscommon County Council, Creative Ireland, Sliabh Bawn Community Benefit Fund, the Ireland Funds, and Tipperary County Council.
