Seo leagan ar leith de ‘An Triail’ i stíl Fíbín! Téann Fíbín i ngleic le ceisteanna a ardaíonn múinteoirí agus scoláirí araon, trí phlota a bhreathnaíonn as dáta a thabhairt isteach i gcomhthéacs sochaí nua-aimseartha ag baint úsáid as puipéid, maisc, radhairc tharraingteacha agus léirithe daonna chun lucht féachana óg, ach go háirithe a mhealladh ar bhealach a thagann le saol na linne seo agus gur féidir teacht ar seó go héasca. Téann an léiriú seo i bhfad lasmuigh den nádúr dubh agus bán atá sa chaint agus cuidíonn an seó na constaicí san fhoghlaim a shárú le seó fuinniúil, mealltach agus greannmhar. BÉARLA: Fíbín presents its highly acclaimed version of the modern Irish classic, 'An Triail' by Máiréad Ní Ghráda. This is 'An Triail' as you have never seen it before! Fíbín addresses issues highlighted by both teachers and students alike, by bringing a seeming outdated plot into the context of modern society using, puppets, masks, engaging visuals and physical performances to appeal particularly to a younger audience, making it current and more accessible. This production goes beyond the black and white nature of the dialogue and helps to overcome these obstacles to learning in a snappy, engaging and humorous show.
