The Dig

  • Performance

Come and see The Dig at Coolock Library, a delightful theatre adventure in archaeology guaranteed to entertain!

All his life Mac has wanted to be an archaeologist, to be an expert at finding things and working out what they mean. If only he could stick to the facts and not get carried away with his highfalutin stories.

But in a world where facts and figures mean so much more than fairy tale and fantasy, Mac has to dig deeper to prove what he finds is what he thinks it is.

Will people believe him or is this just another of his tall tales?

Performer and writer Paul Curley and designer Ger Clancy, in collaboration with award-winning theatre artist Robert Alan Evans, bring this theatre adventure in archaeology to life. The Dig spins a classic yarn into a brand-new light that will delight audiences young and old.
