What’s On: ‘Operation Elsewhere’ bringing to life Irish myths

Six live performances of an online theatrical experience will be available bringing to life Irish myths and taking audiences on a virtual trip to the beautiful Emerald isle.

Operation Elsewhere, created by Northern Irish theatre company Big Telly, is bringing a new and extraordinary online theatrical experience right into homes across the UK.

Once admitted to the journey, the audience weaves their path and meet strange and wonderful characters, faeries and changelings, together with mysterious quests, intrigue and game mechanics.

It culminates in one extraordinary hour of theatrical entertainment and comedy.

The format on Zoom will give audiences the chance to break out into separate ‘rooms’ within Zoom to meet characters.

Originally written by Jane Talbot author of The Faerie Thorn, an acclaimed collection of contemporary dark myths, this new adaptation for Zoom features a cast of seven actors and music composed by Garth McConaghie.

Big Telly’s artistic director Zoe Seaton said: “Operation Elsewhere introduces audiences to an anarchic and contemporary version of Irish mythology.

“The show’s playful quest format breaks down the fourth wall, letting audiences join in a truly live experience.

“It’s theatre born in isolation but with a mission to connect us all in magic and myth.”
