This autumn, Big Telly is producing a double bill of The Well of the Saints and The End of the Beginning, bringing together the company’s contemporary approach to popular Irish Classics and its reputation for theatrical innovation and visual flair spanning 20 years.

Spike Milligan's PUCKOON is a Goonish blend of theatrical anarchy, musical wit, and impossible plot.
