The Star Child is an imaginative dramatisation by Galway Youth Theatre of The Happy PrinceThe Selfish Giant and The Star Child stories penned by Oscar Wilde.

Described as a “haunting, magical fairytale collection”, The Star Child has been adapted for the stage by Mary Elizabeth Burke-Kennedy and directed by Andrew Flynn.

The tales are woven together with a large ensemble of incredible performers, eye catching puppetry, and live music composed by Carl Kennedy.

The Star Child is on each day at 4:30pm in Nuns’ Island Theatre from July 15-28 during Galway International Arts Festival, with no show on Sunday, July 21.

Tickets are €14 and the play has a duration of 1hr 30mins with no interval.
