      29 Jun - 17 Jul 2016

    Bristol favourites, and our long-time friends, Travelling Light, join us this summer with their multi-award-winning tale of two Traveller children on a wild ride across Ireland.

    She’s my horse, she is! What’s her name Grandpa?
    She’s called Tir na n’Og.
    Why’s she called that?
    Because she came from the land under the sea. A place where it is always summer, and no-one grows old.

    Imagine a glorious white horse comes out of a sea-mist and into your troubled life. Imagine trying to keep her on the 14th floor of a Dublin tower block. Now imagine the police are after you, and your only escape is to ride into the west…

    To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this much-loved play, Travelling Light are bringing to a new generation of audiences their internationally-acclaimed story of grit and magic, love and loss, hope and discovery.

    Mini FilmS

    Go behind the scenes with the Into The West team in this series of Theatresight mini-films. First up, an introduction to the production and its huge successful 20 year history.

    The next mini film from Into The West is all about imagination; how the creative team have created many different characters including the horse and how the audience can enjoy using their imaginations too.

    In the following film, Into The West composer Thomas Johnson and director Greg Banks open our eyes (and ears) to the important role of its deeply evocative live music.

    After a lengthy rehearsal process, and countless hours behind the scenes, the Into The West cast and creative team share their excitement at finally bringing the production back to the stage.

    Production Sponsor

    Redmaids’ High School is delighted to sponsor Tobacco Factory Theatres as it stages this production.
