The Cuchulain Cycle -W.B.Yeats/Michael Scott

The Cuchulain Cycle is based on the five plays by W.B. Yeats based on the legend of Cuchulain: At The Hawks Well, The Green Helmet, On Baile Strand, The Only Jealousy of Emer and The Death of Cuchiulain.

Michael Scott created a production at the RHA Downstairs, designed by Michael McCaffery with Costumes designed and executed by Synan O Mahony.

The Producion was funded by The Irish Arts Council and was workshopped over a 2 year period. Michael Scott wrote an original score for the show, which was played by an ensemble of Irish Traditional musicians.

International award winning actress and singer Hazel o Connor lead the company which also included Derek chapman one of the most experienced "Yeats Actors" in the world.
