 Ulster                                                   Connaught
In these places live two best friends: Ireland’s most fearless and feared young warriors. But Ulster and Connaught don’t like each other; they don’t like each other other at all. And huge forces are working to bring the two friends’ worlds crashing against each other… The Hero Light retells the extraordinary tales of the Ulster Cycle – the ‘Irish Iliad’.
Centered on legendary hero Cú Chulainn, the Hound, it weaves together stories of loyalty, love and betrayal that are still startlingly relevant today. Dominic Kelly balances irreverent humour & beautiful imagery with a powerful rendition of a deeply affecting tale. The Hero Light brings an ancient epic to crackling contemporary life.
