ABOUT THE GARDENER / AN GARRAÍODÓIR

Graffiti Theatre Company presents THE GARDENER By Mike Kenny Every season has the other seasons tucked away inside … Joe has a new baby sister and nobody wants to play with him. Nobody wants to play with old Uncle Harry either so together they begin to work on Uncle Harry’s garden. Even if Uncle Harry can’t remember ordinary things he and Joe create a year to remember. Graffiti as Gaeilge An Garraíodóir le Mike Kenny, leagan Gaeilge le Síle Ní Bhroin Taobh istigh de ghach séasúr, tá na séasúir eile faoi cheilt ... Tá deirfiúirín nua ag Joe, agus níl éinne ag iarraidh súgradh leis anois. Níl éinne ag iarraidh súgradh le hUncail Harry ach oiread agus mar sin tosnaíonn an bheirt acu ag obair ar gháirdín Uncail Harry. Cé nach bhfuil cuimhne mhaith ag Uncail Harry ar an gnáthrud, cruthaíonn sé féin agus Joe bliain gur fiú cuimhneamh uirthi.

'Seo mise

Ansin

Beag

Gas beag de ghasúr

Síol, i ndáiríre

Gach rud ionam istigh

Réidh le fás'
