“a masterpiece of storytelling theatre” ***** The Guardian
written, directed and performed by Little John Nee with original music by Laura Sheeran
Set in 1959, Rural Electric is the story of one of the last parishes in Donegal to get the “electric”, and as such reveals the epic achievements of the brave E.S.B. workers as they battle the elements putting up poles and stretching cable across inhospitable hills.
A host of characters step forward from the mists of time to inhabit this fictional parish in a truly inventive one man show that combines physical theatre, comedy, original music and even a car chase!
Rural Electric was originally commissioned for the 2004 Earagail Arts Festival through the Donegal County Council Public Art programme.
