Draiocht will be out and about for a week in July with 9 shows of  'Sing Me To The Sea', taking place in St. Michael’s House Leisure Centre and Swimming Pool and the Central Remedial Clinic.  

Sing Me To The Sea is a multisensory adventure for children and young people with complex needs, created by Bray-based theatre director Anna Newell, in collaboration with composer David Goodall, whose work together has been seen off-Broadway and in South Africa as well as touring extensively in the UK and Ireland.
