The Ark, Ireland

The Haircut!

by Wayne Jordan and Tom Lane

Labhraidh Loingseach has a secret. He wears his hair long and he has it cut only once a year. Once a year on the same night in the same place and in the same style. But never by the same barber.

The Haircut! is a cautionary tale with a live musical soundtrack. The Haircut! is a fairytale remixed and retold. The Haircut! is a play about secrets and about creativity stifled. About fighting for what you believe in and standing up to power. About music and magic and hair.

Set in a magical modern day Ireland, The Haircut! is a new commission from The Ark, written by Wayne Jordan, delivered with ineffable charm by bright new talent Thommas Kane Byrne and accompanied by Tom Lane’s vibrant score played by three outstanding musicians.

Ages 8+
