Lex Talionis

A Tale of Vengeance and Feathersby Liam Heylin

As part of the Cork Midsummer Festival, Wandering Star presents 
Lex Talionis (A Tale of Vengeance & Feathers), a new play by Liam Heylin whose previous work includes Love, Peace & Robbery and Hung Juror.

‘If I told ya to jump off a buildin’ would ya?’
‘That’s different, we’re jumpin’ off buildin’s all day long!’

Hugh is an older rook with chicks on the way. Mooney is a younger rook whose new friend Max is not what she seems. Dónie is a magpie, and he is bad news. When someone is murdered all hell breaks loose. There will be vengeance. That’s what the weird Latin title is about – the law of retaliation, an eye for an eye.

This is another play from the seriously funny Liam Heylin about savage craic on the streets of Cork City. A bird’s eye view, if you will.

Directed by Katrina Foley.

Starring Aisling McCarthy, Sinéad Donnelly, Sinéad McGee
and Bláithín MacGabhann

This play contains strong language and some mild violence.
