THE WINDSTEALERS

 

Welcome to Ballygweeha, the windiest town in Ireland!

The people haven’t heard each other properly in years over the roar of the
gales, no-one’s ever been able to get a fire lit and everywhere you look, shit’s just blown over.

 

The locals have spent their whole lives walking against the wind, resulting in the famed half bent-over, sidewards shuffle known as the 'Gweeha sidle. 
When prodigal son Luc Torney returns after ten years to save the town from ruin with a windfarm scheme, he is hailed as a hero. 
But town layabout Jacinta Nangle is brewing up a storm. 

 

A cast of gurriers, property developers and mammies collide in this modern Irish satire on corruption and national character.

 

This is an ambitious project and a great
vehicle for the ensemble cast of seven, who
are immaculate and hilarious.

The Windstealers casts its gaze on the
exploiters and exploited in modern Ireland.
The cast of the Eccles Theatre Group possess a fantastic dynamism and superb comic timing.
