What they said:

  • “They say there is a thin line between insanity and genius and Big Telly’s adaptation of Spike Milligan’s novel Puckoon demonstrates how very thin that line is, and how very easy it is to jump back and forth across that line with a silly grin on one’s face.”
  • British Theatre Guide, Puckoon, March 2011

Cuchulainn

A Wild Theatrical Adventure! Fun and excitement were the key words for Big Telly's original production of CUCHULAINN. Circus skills, music, songs, comedy, dance and mime were all included in this energetic show which was inspired by the stories of the ancient Ulster hero.

Metamorphosis

As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from a night of uneasy dreams he found himself transformed into a gigantic insect... Big Telly brought together the stunning music and dance team that created its Autumn 1995 production of Cuchulainn to produce this Irish premiere of Berkoff's amazing production. Berkoff's play is based on Franz Kafka's story Metamorphosis about a travelling salesman who finds that overnight he has become transformed into a giant insect.
