Hob Nailed Boots Perform Hunger

Sean and Ros Coyne of the The Hob Nailed Boots Theatre Company from Renvyle, Ireland will perform Hunger.
This play by the Irish poet Eamon Grennan is about the Potato Famine of 1845-50. The script is drawn from nonfictional, historical accounts of real people struggling to stay alive through one of the worst agricultural disasters in world history.
