An hilarious, absurd and poignant tale of a 100-year-old Irishman… and his father! Together they set out to discover the son they never knew he had. “There’s a child belonging to me wandering around out there for seventy years and I never met him. I’ve a trip left in me… Get me leg!" Featuring live original Music by Jim Doherty, and directed by award-winning actor Aaron Monaghan. ‘Trad’ is a side-splitting, heart-warming saga not to be missed. Following their highly-acclaimed 2018 tour, and their extended sold-out run at The Peacock Theatre, Livin’ Dred Theatre present the award-winning ‘Trad’ by Mark Doherty.
